ABSA has expanded its Digital Partnership Ecosystem through collaboration with CiTi, MEST and Grindstone.
The agreements expand Absa’s Digital Partnerships capability, established in 2020 to facilitate collaboration with innovative, mature start-ups from around the world. The capability connects Absa and its partners through key local, regional, and global networks to promote co-creation potential, particularly in the technology and digital space.
Inclusive entry into the digital value chain for entrepreneurs and SMMEs, both in the formal and informal economy, plays a pivotal role in developing the South African economy. The Cape Innovation & Technology Initiative believes that we can create opportunities for execution of new ideas and growth by providing education and access to technology and innovation. “We have collaborated with Absa for ecosystem and micro-enterprise development, as well as acceleration programmes and events that include the Top Tech Tools for Women in Business.”
– Ian Merrington, CEO of CiTi.
