Five of the Best Budding UWC Entrepreneurs Head To Intervarsity Competition

Entrepreneurship is all about innovation and creativity, and many student entrepreneurs displayed just that when they pitched their ideas at the University of the Western Cape (UWC) internal round of the Entrepreneurship Intervarsity competition. But only five of the best aspiring student entrepreneurs could go through to the next round. 

The five students – all women – will represent the University at the regional leg of the contest next week (6 to 9 July 2020) when they take on other similar business-minded students from the neighbouring Cape Peninsula University of Technology, the University of Cape Town and Stellenbosch University. The winners at the regional leg will represent the Western Cape in the national competition later in the month.

Qondisa Mbekwa’s Ezamabhinqa Creations, a rental service for designer evening wear, and Thobeka Nkabinde’s Bomvu, which is a satin head wraps and natural hair care business, will represent UWC in the New Business Idea category.
