Professor Rob Midgley, Vice-Chancellor and Principal of Walter Sisulu University (WSU) in the Eastern Cape, recently implored his students to become entrepreneurial, quoting the anti-apartheid activist after whom the university is named, to support his plea.

He was the first of eight speakers in WSU’s video presentation at the Student Entrepreneurship Week (#SEW2020) earlier this month. #SEW2020 is an annual project of the Entrepreneurship Development in Higher Education (EDHE) programme – which represents a partnership between the Department of Higher Education and Training and Universities South Africa, the representative association of South Africa’s public universities.
