#Africa Got a great idea for a Cape Town tech startup? Help is here


Applications are open to the Telkom FutureMakers InnoTech programme, seeking Cape Town-based budding entrepreneurs in need of help to get their tech startup ideas off the ground.

Now in its third year, the FutureMakers InnoTech programme is an intensive “concept to market” process, aimed at helping would-be entrepreneurs with great ideas translate these ideas into operating tech businesses.

InnoTech is open to all tech-enabled businesses, although Telkom says certain fields are of particular interest, namely, B2B solutions; e-commerce; gaming and media; fintech; healthtech; edtech; and govtech.

The five month programme consists of two phases. In the eight-week “Pitch Deck” phase, participants will focus on addressing business fundamentals, and strengthening their business pitch. Phase one culminates in a minimum-viable-product (MVP) bootcamp.

Those who successfully complete phase one progress to the second 12-week phase, which focuses on getting in front of customers, and refining business propositions. This stage ends with participants presenting their new businesses to potential funders.

Throughout the programme, the cohort will participate in “Founder Fridays”, bringing together entrepreneurs from Cape Town’s tech ecosystem.

To be eligible, teams must be Cape Town-based; and 51 per cent black-owned.

Applications are open here, until May 19.
