Cohesion, Cape Town-style.

With initiatives such as Silicon Cape, Heavy Chef, Wesgro, CiTi, Workshop17, Future Females and Inner City Ideas Cartel all being borne out this vibrant community, Cape Town is quickly establishing as a world leader in tech entrepreneurship. CTSUW is a collaboration between many organisations, all coming together for a week of celebration of this vibrant community:


Technically, We Rock

This is our chance to celebrate Cape Town’s technologists, leaders and creatives.

Cape Town has the most active, creative and cohesive entrepreneur ecosystem in Africa. After a long, hard year, Cape Town Startup Week is our chance to celebrate our successes, lament our challenges and cast a lens on the great work that is being done to stimulate the African economy from the southernmost tip of the continent.
