This is the second year the Vice-Chancellor has run his UCT Upstarts Social Innovation Challenge in partnership by the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship and Super Stage. Student teams working on social innovation ideas get support from coaches, workshops, and experts to help them with their ideas. The programme culminates with with an ideas auction where the teams launch their ideas.
I love the energy of this programme and the quality of input for the teams is really high. There were some fantastic ideas last year and some of them are really taking off. It was great to see some of the guys who took part last year, back again with new ideas.
