Paddle signs to flash at fellow drivers for bad driving, vinyl stickers to bling up your scooter, backlighting for artworks and transparent rain gear – these are just some of the ideas and products that will be on display at the UCT Entrepreneurship Expo in the Molly Blackburn Hall on 16 September. The ideas all flow from a postgraduate diploma in management with a focus on entrepreneurship.

Want to flash a sign for bad driving? Then stock up on Flip-It's paddle signs (retailing for between R40 to R100). Looking for some funky stickers made out of vinyl to stick on your scooter? Then visit the Simply Stuck stall that has iconic images like Table Mountain and the African continent on display.

Then there's iLanga Art that "sheds light on the positive potential found in South Africa" by illuminating artwork from within using an LED. iLanga collaborates with emerging artists, student creatives and art empowerment programmes.

The expo is part of the postgrad diploma class's syllabus, and many of the students hinted that they were thinking of pursuing some of these business ideas beyond graduation.
