The Fellowship Programme

Get involved with the top university business incubator in Africa.


This year, in partnership with Innovus and the SRC, we are driving a host of student centered initiatives (IdeaSmash, Student Entrepreneurship week, Innovus Bootcamp and Hackathon) together.


The overall goal is to foster problem solving capabilities among students, to promote thought leadership and responsible entrepreneurial engagements.

The Details

For the 2019 LaunchLab Fellowship program we are looking for entrepreneurial Stellenbosch University student leaders.

The Fellows will help us drive student related programs and we are excited about the opportunity that lies ahead.


How It Works

The objective is to select student ambassadors that can:

  • Build momentum for high-tech entrepreneurship by engaging with the LaunchLab community.
  • Grow your professional network and gain possible internship and work opportunities within the startup ecosystem.
  • Help coordinate events and other activities for the wider student community in Stellenbosch.

The Fellowship program is a non-paid, voluntary internship that is lightweight on commitment, but an effective way to build your professional network and experience.


We have four positions for eight SU scholars who are interested in leadership portfolio/positions as follows:

  • Community and events
  • Alumni Liaison and Industry Interaction
  • Ideation and Validation (Key personnel for Idea smash )
  • Student activation and marketing

Fellowship Activities:

  • Bi-weekly Meetups and educational engagements
    • Interaction with Stellenbosch University technologies
    • Access to the LaunchLab network of partners and service providers
    • Develop your own new and interesting solutions, and showcase to relevant members of our community
  • Run the Stellenbosch University Ideasmash Competition
  • Assist at LaunchLab events and other related programs
