Professor Keolebogile Shirley Motaung did not have to rattle off a list to illustrate The skill set required for commercialisation, which was the title of the session in which she spoke at the recent Entrepreneurship Development in Higher Education (EDHE) Executive Leadership Workshop in Cape Town. She embodies some of those skills, from passion to enthusiasm and drive.

Considering that she is Director: Technology Transfer and Innovation at the Durban University of Technology (DUT), Motaung has the knowledge of the commercialisation context to make those skills shine. She also has practical experience of the process.
