Two scholars at the University of the Free State (UFS) took their scientific know-how and, together, with support from the university, created a successful business.

Mr Christopher Rothmann (right), who is doing his PhD in food biotechnology specialising in mycology, presented the tale of the development of his company, LiquidCulture, at the Entrepreneurship Development in Higher Education (EDHE) Lekgotla last month. His talk, Case Study: Best Practice in University-supported approach to Starting and Growing a Business, was part of the session titled The University as Catalyst for Entrepreneurial Change on September 16.
