South Africans have long been recognised for their pioneering efforts and many of significant “world firsts” come from South Africa. For example, Computicket, the world’s first complex, computerised ticketing system was invented by South Africa’s leading ticketing agent. Appletiser was first squeezed in 1965 in Elgin Valley. The swimming pool cleaning machine, Kreepy Krauly, was invented by Ferdinand Chauvier from Springs, South Africa. And so the list goes on. The SA Innovation Summit prides itself in identifying and nurturing this kind of talent and creating the space where investors can experience it first hand through the Pitching Den and instantly connect in the Match & Invest lounge.
World renowned speakers and industry experts in their fields have crossed the Innovation Summit stage over the last 10 years. This year will be no different! The Call for Speakers is currently open and the line-up will be announced over the next coming months!
The SA Innovation Summit creates the platform for growing companies and industries – no matter at what stage your business finds itself. The Summit creates unique opportunities to connect with investors, customers, mentors or getting exposure to the media. With growing international participation, you can engage with tech communities and audiences from across the world.
Without trusted partners walking the road with us every year, the SA Innovation Summit would not have existed. The Cape Town Stadium offers a unique platform where established brands and companies can rub shoulders with startups, new ideas and emerging trends in technology. There are numerous opportunities to launch exciting new products, exhibit, network and connect.
