Dear Silicon Cape Startups


We are launching an exciting new initiative called the Silicon Cape Academy: a monthly educational event covering important topics for tech startups. For every different topic we have partnered with industry experts to provide you with practical advice on how to better start and grow your own company. 

Our aim is to assist you to become better, more succesful entrepreneurs.


The first topic will be: Funding for Startups

We have 3 different speakers from the 3 different funding options you have as an entrepreneur (except if you are operating after the principle “friends, family or fools” first) namely

  • Equity Angel and VC: invenfin: Alexandra Fraser
  • Debt: FNB: Shamillah Al-Qudah & Fadhloe Levy
  • Loans and Royalty deal structuring: TIA:

    Craig Landsberg & Naim Rassool

DATE: Thursday, June 23rd from 4pm to 6pm at ALBA lounge in the Waterfront. 


It is free to attend, but capacity is limited to 70 people so please register quickly. There will be a cash bar available for drinks and snacks.

After the Silicon Cape Academy our usual Thirsty Thursdays will also take place also at the Alba Lounge from 6pm so keep your evening free!


We look forward seeing you there!



PS: As we are only just starting with the events series your input and ideas on topics you are interested in is highly appreciated – so please just send them through to me or answer on this post with them.
