The Botho University Business Owners Platform has been created to provide support to all graduates and students of Botho University who are operating businesses of their own. The idea is to create a strong network of Botho University entrepreneurs and increase the visibility of their efforts using Botho University's platform and networks.

The University is always making strides to promote entrepreneurship as an alternative for employment and has a compulsory Entrepreneurship Module across all programs offered. Over and above that, the University also operates an incubator called the Entrepreneurship Lab (ELab) that is an initiative geared towards mainstreaming entrepreneurship and  ensuring that the University not only churns out technically experienced employment ready graduates, but entrepreneurial ones too. 

We therefore firmly stand by our graduate and student business owners who are contributing to the economy. The Botho University Business Owners platform is designed to help them grow and flourish. Our intention is to come up with proactive initiatives such as this to ensure that bonafide Botho University Graduates succeed in their pursuits.  We lead by example in giving our graduates a space to thrive.
