2018 was a big year for Silicon Cape – as we approach our 10 year anniversary, we chose to pause and reflect on where we had come from and, more importantly, where we want to go. We conducted a thorough strategic review, engaging our stakeholders through a series of courageous conversations, and looking to our peers around the world.
What we learned was that our ecosystem has evolved, it has matured in many ways but still needs an independent, coordinating structure to
- hold a big picture viewpoint;
- curate and cultivate connections and resources; and
- create a social capital network for those entrepreneurs who may not have one available to them in their current communities.
These processes resulted in our new Membership Model – a structure which allows us to remain independent, financially sustainable and closer to a wider network of stakeholders. We want you to join us as we embark on our next 10-year adventure!
