Cape Town is ranked in the top 30 cities at the forefront of global tech (released in February 2019 by Saville consulting).


There is a distinct and established culture of tech innovation and entrepreneurship in the city, so it’s little wonder half of emerging tech companies in South Africa are based in the Western Cape. One need only look at a few of the tech success stories to see how this sector is flourishing: Yoco (Fintech), Aerobotics (Artificial intelligence), SweepSouth (Digital services), Yuppiechef (ecommerce), Recomed (Health & Biotech) and Dataprophet (Artificial Intelligence).
