The Silicon Cape committee is hosting a community get together to give you an update from the committee members, what the current direction is & most importantly to get feedback from different groups and people in our community.
Please spread the word about this event and show up with your feedback and ideas for the future of Silicon Cape.
Some questions to consider:
* What are you hoping for from Silicon Cape?
* How can we as the Silicon Cape community:
- improve our industry?
- help your business?
- help your career?
- support your initiatives?
From Rob Stokes' intro in the newsletter:
Since its inception, the Silicon Cape Initiative has had many amazing supporters, but also many doubters and critics many of whom feel we could be doing a lot more and they are right. I think the message I want to share today is that if you are in Silicon Cape, you are a part of Silicon Cape, that's just a reality. You don't have to support the Silicon Cape Initiative as an organisation, but you are still a vital part of Silicon Cape.
It's also important that you know that it is driven by a group of people volunteering their time and doing their best to grow this cluster into something that can compete on a global stage. We won't always get it right, but we will always give it our absolute best. South Africa has an incredible opportunity to export its intellectual property through technology and I want to encourage each and every one of you to try and play a positive part in that we have so very much to gain as a country if we get this right.
On that note, we want to hear more from our community on how we can help you succeed in your businesses. To this end, we will be holding a Town Hall feedback session on the evening of 24 May.
Whether you are an entrepreneur, developer, investor, student or just someone who cares about promoting our region, please join us and make your voice heard. Your Executive Committee will be there to listen to each and every one of you. We'll also have a few drinks afterwards so we can spend some time getting to know each other better. I really look forward to seeing you there.
