Business / Government / Academia

The relationship between business, government and academia is vital to economies, especially those that require high levels of socio-economic transformation. At Accelerate Cape Town, we believe that these three stakeholders should collaborate to positively contribute to the socio-economic transformation South Africa so desperately needs.

We work to create an ecosystem in which engagement between business, government and the Western Cape’s four universities is synergetic and highly impactful.

Accelerate Cape Town’s Business Leadership Programme aims to:

  • Stimulate robust discussion on issues such as governance and ethics and also, to hold government accountable on these critical issues
  • Connect Business, Government and Higher Education to find opportunities to collaborate and co-create, generating greater economies of scale
  • Tap into the depth of expertise found in universities, ensuring we remain innovative and relevant as a city
