What Is InnoTech?
InnoTech looks to stimulate the creation of new businesses and support the expansion and growth of existing companies through the uptake of technology and innovation capability.
InnoTech supports black entrepreneurs and black-owned SMMEs, but other candidates interested in collaborating with black-owned businesses may apply too.
We’re looking for small businesses with big ideas. We’re looking for talented teams that can use the power of ICT for good.
Gaming for improved matric maths scores, smart grids for renewable energy integration, optimised video for community news, real-time data for disaster management… your business could change the world.
Why You Want This:
If selected for the InnoTech programme, you will receive professionally serviced office space and connectivity, mentorship and business training, and, ultimately, access to markets and potential additional funding via Telkom’s Enterprise Development Fund.
You will join a group of some of the Western Cape’s most exciting entrepreneurs and start-ups, committed to realising a better world through ICT.
