Background to Student Entrepreneurship Week
National Student Entrepreneurship Week was piloted in 2017 and was successfully executed on in 2018 by the public universities and some TVET colleges. These one-week campaigns took place through the hosting of in-house programmes by the institutions in partnership with business, industry and NPOs. The entrepreneurial and innovative actions of dynamic champions for entrepreneurship at the participating institutions made these campaigns instrumental in raising awareness of entrepreneurship as a career, as well as emphasising the benefits of having the best of both worlds as a student and an entrepreneur.
SEW2020 in a nutshell
Drawing from the accomplishments of #SEW2017, #SEW2018 and 2019 this year’s aim is for all (26) public universities and TVET colleges to participate in the #SEW2020 under the theme #AfroTech. This year’s theme is motivated by the successful virtual EDHE Lekgotla 2020 which was hosted from the 14-18 September 2020
Objectives of #SEW2020
#SEW2017, #SEW2018 and #SEW2019 have raised awareness of the fact that employment is not a student’s only avenue to participate in the economy. This has lead students to come up with innovative and creative ideas to solve many problems in society. The hybrid event this year allows Universities and TVET Colleges to showcase the different entrepreneurial activities happening at their campuses.
This year’s events will be a high-impact event to raise awareness and inspire students towards entrepreneurship.
A high-impact experience to raise awareness of and inspire students towards entrepreneurship.
