The 2020 edition of the Entrepreneurship Intervarsity Competition was launched in Johannesburg on Wednesday, 21 January. It was a joyful event attended by academics and student representatives from universities, private sector partners and the overall programme sponsor, the Department of Higher Education and Training.

Competition entries opened up at midnight on that day and will close on 2 March.

Run by the Entrepreneurship Development in Higher Education (EDHE) programme of Universities South Africa (USAf), this competition is inculcating an entrepreneurial culture in students and academics at South Africa’s 26 universities. The Programme has been designed to create real business owners out of enterprising students, with the aim that they become innovators now, graduating into job and wealth creators and ultimately contributing to national economic growth when they exit university.
