Opportunity for digital entrepreneurs

The Solution Space, at the University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business (GSB) is looking for 10 digital start-up entrepreneurs to take part in the Winter School Venture Incubation Programme (VIP), which begins in September.

Run over three months, the programme provides participants with mentorship, advisory services, access to investor and corporate networks and workshops on business fundamentals such as marketing strategy and business model development.

The programme has helped over 30 start-ups over the past two years. The programme is aiming to reach innovators in Fintech, IoT, Edtech, Agtech, e-commerce,
entertainment and gaming as well as Healthtech.

“This is an opportunity for innovation-driven entrepreneurs who are working on digital solutions to take their business to the next level,” says Sarah-Anne Alman, manager at the Solution Space.

“The early-stages of a start-up are so critical. Often the least supported time in the life-cycle of a start-up.

“We aim for maximum impact at this stage and for start-ups to leave our incubator with a thorough understanding of the fundamentals required for a viable solution.”
