Dear Students

The Entrepreneurship Development in Higher Education (EDHE) launches the third edition of the annual EDHE Entrepreneurship Intervarsity. The aim of the EDHE Entrepreneurship Intervarsity is to identify top student entrepreneurs at South Africa’s public universities, recognise and showcase their businesses and attract investment into this batch of businesses. 

Entries to this competition close on 30 April 2021. The EDHE Entrepreneurship Intervarsity is open to every registered student at South Africa’s 26 public universities. It will run in four stages, beginning with registration and confirmation of accepted entries. The second stage will entail competitions at institutional level, followed by regional rounds, all culminating in the national finals earmarked for October 2021. 

Prizes remain unchanged in 2021. The overall winner will receive R100 000 and winners for each category will scoop R20 000. Students can submit entries online via the EDHE website, in the following categories: 

  • Category 1: Business Ideas
