Products showcased by students
With the autumn graduation ceremonies on campus having ended on Friday, 13April, it was certain that celebrating milestones achieved would be on the weekend agenda.
In this celebratory vibe, VUT FM, in collaboration with the Residence Living & Learning department, decided to boost student entrepreneurs too and presented them with the VUT Social Gardens. This event infused fun with business by affording student entrepreneurs the platform to showcase their products and services.
In recent months, there has been a rise of creatives around campus. However, many are so busy focusing on the quality of their crafts, that they do not have time to market them.
The event was made festive by some live performances and DJ’s playing music to entertain the crowd that came out.
“This was the second instalment of the VUT Social Gardens, and it seems to have grown in size and stature. It is refreshing to see students work collaboratively with the institution in ensuring growth of small businesses by students,” said Lebina Ditha, one of the organisers
