Call for SA education system to promote entrepreneurship as a career

South Africa’s education system needs to promote entrepreneurship as a career if it is to succeed in creating employment opportunities for the country's young people.

Sanlam/Business Partners Entrepreneur of the Year Competition project manager, Nimo Naidoo, points out that, "There is a great opportunity for our youth to choose entrepreneurship as a career and become job creators rather than job seekers."

Speaking ahead of the World Entrepreneurship Day which will be celebrated on 15 April, states that entrepreneurship will then address unemployment issues by providing an outlet for the talents of many highly educated young people such as college and university graduates, especially in globally-growing industries such as information technology.
