The aims of the national University Capacity Development Programme feed directly into SEED’s mission to develop student entrepreneurs and enhance student employability.

Entrepreneurship at Nelson Mandela University

Nelson Mandela University has a responsibility to prepare you for the world of work – the one that exists and the one you create.

In the South African context, tertiary education and entrepreneurship are complementary. Employers require credible work experience from job seekers and students need employment to gain this experience, they must be equipped to start small businesses or explore skills development opportunities.
