The University of Namibia Business Innovation Society (UNIBIS) and Safland Property Group this week awarded the best three stalls at this year’s University of Namibia Cultural Festival. The judging of the stalls took place on the 6th and 8th of September, and four winners were chosen by the judges from a total of fifty-six stalls.
Speaking at the event UNIBIS Deputy Chairman Josephine Haubus said that the act forms part of UNIBIS and Safland Properties’ initiative to make sure that students have a role of entrepreneurship in the global village in line with Vision 2030. “Vision 2030 is calling for innovation and creativity, we should not suffer from dependency syndrome, we need to boost our country by thinking interestingly, productively and aggressively”.
The winners of the best stalls received prize money up to N$1500 00. Agnes Pokolo and Atejioye Motunrayo Olubisi walked away with N$500 00 for getting the third place position, second place went to Monica Atutishi who won N$1000 00 and Ali Petrus Petrus won first place and walked away with N$1500 00.
The University of Namibia Business Innovation Society was established on 17 March this year by a group of enthusiastic students who wanted to create jobs before and after graduation. One of their key motives is to create a platform from which students and all those interested in business and entrepreneurship will get the survival tips on how to start a business, how to finance it, how to manage it and most importantly teach them that they do not have to be employees but employers.
