Cape Town is known as the tech startup capital in Africa and this year it will play host to the XVII International Triple Helix Conference on 9 to 11 September 2019. With breathtaking views and ocean breeze, it sets the tone for inspiration and collaboration.

The ‘Mother City’, as Cape Town is often referred to, is one of the oldest cities in South Africa and a true metropolis (derived from Greek metros –mother, polis – city). Rich in history, language and culture, it is so aptly named. Cape Town boasts breathtaking views of the two oceans, Pacific and Atlantic, surrounded by beautiful mountains and a wealth of knowledge. It offers its visitors a full immersion in the culture and an opportunity to experience the South African startup ecosystem; one that is leading Industry 4.0 in the country.

To make your conference journey a little easier, Kumba Africa is here to assist:
