Dear Members and friends of EDHE

The EDHE community (Entrepreneurship Development in Higher Education) has suffered a great loss. Our friend and colleague, Richardt Kok, passed away peacefully at the age of 39. The loss is immeasurable, and it is a loss not only to EDHE and USAf, but to the national community of EDHE members and friends associated with the 26 public universities.

Below is a letter from our Director, Dr Norah Clarke, on behalf of the EDHE team, for your information.

Although we are deeply saddened, we remain resolute to continue and grow the development of student entrepreneurship; entrepreneurship through teaching, learning, and research; and entrepreneurial universities – alongside you.

We would like to extend an invitation to join us in a memorial service to celebrate Mr Kok’s life and honour his memory. The service will be held on the 4th of April from 9:00 to 10:30 am via Zoom.

During the service, we will reminisce about Mr Kok’s accomplishments, share stories and memories, and reflect on his impact on our organisation.

Kind regard
