Development Projects


The Student Start-Up campaign was launched in May 2016 to develop a strong entrepreneurship culture on campus. The main aim is to drive and manage entrepreneurship development among students and university personnel, who run businesses or have a business idea.

Over 50 students and university personnel attended the launch and signed up to participate in the campaign.

Koi Strategy founder Neil Hinrichsen managed a three-day workshop, while the UWC Centre for Entrpreneurship and Innovation hosted masterclasses that will run from July to October.

The Student Start-Up will be a UWC CEI regular initiative to help students create entrepreneurship opportunities and to develop as business owners.

The Flows Finders campaign is a UWC post-grad student-focused entrepreneur workshop, which is aimed at developing academics in the field of entrepreneurship. This will help post-grad students identify entrepreneurship opportunities and give them the necessary skills and tools to start and grow a business.

The workshop will be managed by Flow Finder’s Christoff Oosthuysen, who is focused on increasing ‘flow experiences’ in the workplace. Here he helps customers from corporations, small businesses and not-for-profit organisations to find meaning in their work so that they can achieve their personal goals and contribute effectively to the objectives of the organisations they work in.
