Student Entrepreneurship Week 2020 (#SEW2020) kicked off with resounding approval from three leading figures in Higher Education who all agreed that entrepreneurship and the creation of a culture of entrepreneurial thinking was crucial for institutions of higher learning.

The fact that 550 students from across the country are expected to be involved in virtual discussions around entrepreneurial programmes and projects impressed CEO of Universities South Africa (USAf) Professor Ahmed Bawa. He noted that this comes on the heels of the successful Entrepreneurship Development in Higher Education (EDHE) Lekgotla on High Tech Innovation in Africa, held in September this year, attractingover 1000 participants.
