iCrowdNewswire - Jun 15, 2015

 

‘UCT Upstarts’ is the Vice-Chancellor’s Social Innovation Challenge. It is a joint-initiative between the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship, and Super Stage.

UCT Upstarts is a 20 Week Pop-up experience that will change your life, because it’s where the world comes to you – and where you get to change the world!

Whether you’re in commerce or law, medicine or engineering, film or psychology… or whether you’re a first year or MBA student, you’re a potential Upstart – join the uprising now!


 

What is UCT Upstarts?

It is a joint-initiative between the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship, and Super Stage.
 

The Big Idea:

We’re igniting a ‘Student Start-up Nation’ by creating a parallel university experience – one that produces a generation of both GRADUATES and SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURS – who solve real-world problems from campus, and launch start-up realities beyond it…
 
 
Because we believe we need to build a Social Innovation Culture that literally does make Africa work better and an Innovation Economy that actually does create jobs – starting from campus!

 

The Experience:
 
Welcome to the Epicentre of Social Innovation! UCT upstarts is a 20 Week Pop-up experience that will change your life, because it’s where the world comes to you – and where you get to change the world!
 
 
Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday during lunchtime (Meridian), you’ll get to experience the most inspiring, imaginative and interactive Pop-up Curriculum, led by radical Social Entrepreneurs, ‘Pro-Circuit’ Coaches and Innovation Activists!
 
 
The Vice-Chancellor’s Social Innovation Challenge – “Imagine A New Africa”, will culminate in an ‘Idea Auction’ that will launch teams into Super Stardom, and their revolutionary start-up ideas into action.
 
 
So, whether you’re in commerce or law, medicine or engineering, film or psychology… or whether you’re a first year or MBA student, you’re a potential Upstart – so join the uprising now!
