UFS rewards young entrepreneurs
2007-11-14

 

The Unit for Entrepreneurship in the Department of Business Management at the University of the Free State (UFS) presented an entrepreneurship competition for primary and high schools in co-operation with Senwes. Learners had to submit a business plan, which was evaluated by lecturers from the department. Rudo Peens, a Grade 5 learner from Sand du Plessis Primary School, was named the winner in the primary school competition and received prize money to the value of R10 000. In his business idea, Cactus characters, he uses cactus designs in various ways, such as for making key rings. The high school finalists each received R1 500 to implement their business plans. The winner of the high school section will be announced early in 2008 and will receive a study bursary to the value of R100 000 from the UFS. Here are, from the left: Mr André Burger (Manager of Senwes, Bloemfontein), Rudo Peens and Mr Jacques Nel (Lecturer at the UFS Department of Business Management).
