Are you interested in working with startup companies? Are you excited by working on a project that could transform the University? Do you want to gain valuable fundraising skills? Then we have an opportunity for you.


At Stellenbosch University LaunchLab our mission is to transform seemingly impossible ideas into world-shaping businesses. We have the amazing job of taking Intellectual Property from SU and commercialising it as startup companies so that it may reach a mass audience. We also work with companies from across the local and international ecosystem to help grow their business.


SU LaunchLab has been designated as the entrepreneurial hub for the University. We are leading an inter-departmental task force to embed entrepreneurial thought, activity & action throughout SU. We are using this opportunity to employ startup principles such as market scoping, hypothesis testing and design thinking in order to create a pitch deck, business plan and financial model to present to the University for Seed Funding.


We are looking for 2 eager, curious, hard-working, self-starting, entrepreneurial USB students to join us on this startup journey. They will work closely with the SU LaunchLab team to test, iterate and develop the business model. They will serve a critical role in developing crucial materials while gaining awesome exposure to startup life.


If this opportunity fills you with excitement then we ask you to do the following: send us a CV, 30-second video discussing your passion for entrepreneurship and a 250-word Personal Motivation Letter. The position will pay a small stipend but could provide either part-time or full-time employment if the candidate produces exemplary results.
