28 June | LaunchLab Talk | Silicon Cape – “Facilitating Valuable Connections in the Start-Up Ecosystem”
Boitumelo “Tumi” Menyatswe is the Founder of MINDERZ and Ecosystem Manager for Silicon Cape. Silicon Cape is a non-profit, community-driven initiative that supports and catalyzes the creation of a vibrant, sustainable tech and entrepreneurial start-up ecosystem in South Africa, which the Nedbank Stellenbosch University LaunchLab is very much a part of. Silicon Cape’s key role is facilitating connections and providing resources for entrepreneurs and innovators to build and grow successful technology-enabled companies.
In addition to running her own tech-startup and being an active participant in the creation of a framework for a resilient digital economy in South Africa, Boitumelo also advocates for inclusion and diversity by volunteering at GirlHype, an organization aimed at increasing the pipeline of women and girls in STEM. In September 2017, Inspiring Fifty in cooperation with the Kingdom of the Netherlands and #cocreateSA listed her as one of the top fifty (50) most “Inspiring South African Women” working in the different spheres of technology and innovation. Mercedes Benz also listed her as one of the top 5 innovators to “look out for” in 2017.
We invite you to attend the next great LaunchLab Talk where Boitumelo will talk about the entrepreneurial start-up ecosystem in South Africa and their key role in facilitating valuable connections to help you better understand the landscape of the SA start-up ecosystem.
We’re excited to welcome her, and you, to the newest LaunchLab Talk event which, as always, will be closed by drinks and networking with like-minded individuals.
