CAPE TOWN – The University of the Western Cape (UWC) has rolled out a programme aimed at boosting small business development among the youth.
The Entrepreneurship is a Career Initiative is a two-day seminar that kicked off on the Bellville campus on Wednesday afternoon.
Officials say the programme sets out to provide alternatives in addressing the high unemployment rate in the country.
It will also enable students to interact with leaders in the business sector.
UWC’s Director of the Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation Charlene Duncan said: “We kicked off our programme on Wednesday afternoon with a debate titled Entrepreneurship is a Career.
“We invited various stakeholders within the university, so we have academics on the panel. And we also have Lulo Rubushe, a UWC student entrepreneur, who has been nominated by Forbes Africa as the youngest best thirty youth entrepreneurs under the age 30 in Africa.”
