New technologies are constantly being presented and digital transformation is now a priority for most business leaders. Emerging technology such as IoT, AI, machine learning, advanced robotics and 3D printing are being adopted in the workplace and through high-performance computing, are creating data-driven efficiencies and transforming businesses across the globe.

In addition to its role in business, Accelerate Cape Town believes that technology has the potential to build a future-proof city and we engage the City of Cape Town and Western Cape Government on their Smart City as well as Digital City strategies, in an effort to build a more efficient and sustainable city. The aim of our Technology Programme is to:

  • Showcase emerging technologies and their impact on business
  • Showcase various digital initiatives and opportunities across the City and Province through our events and workshops
  • Provide a conduit for business to engage with the public sector and strengthen collaboration
  • Facilitate and accelerate initiatives to position Cape Town as Africa’s first Smart City
