I recently really enjoyed an experience with over around 30 MBA students who had travelled from the Freeman School of Business at Tulane University (Louisiana) for a Capstone Experience in South Africa. Akro Capital, itself a startup in Cape Town, facilitated a portion of the trip by using their own co-working startups as presenters.

Our MBA cohort had the pleasure of visiting Akro Capital’s office in Cape Town during our visit to South Africa as part of our International Business Course. Our cohort received excellent presentations on Akro Capital’s startups, talent and the business environment in South Africa. I gained valuable insights about South Africa, its business environment and potential, from our discussions. The visit was an excellent learning opportunity for me.

Janine and the staff were accommodating and took care of all the details to arrange the visit. They set up contacts with a variety of businesses utilising their space, so our students could hear firsthand about starting a business in Cape Town. The home cooked meal they arranged for lunch was delicious and provided an opportunity for us to interact with the business owners informally over the meal. We plan to return to AKRO in the future to further enhance our students’ experience by engaging in local business consulting projects arranged through AKRO.

Set in Cape Town, seen as the gateway to Africa, and with Silicon Cape leading the way into the tech startup scene, many VC’s and startups have made Cape Town home.

The most mature startup ecosystem in Africa, and with its international flavor, it is easy to see why this is a great choice for startups.

Access to creative thinking with the design and art influence, access to skills through the local tertiary institutions, notably University of Stellenbosch and University of Cape Town, beautiful location and attractive lifestyle have all operated in bringing all the critical people in the startup ecosystem to this part of the world.

Participants of our programmes will have access to a first world, multi-cultural, vibrant city.

Access to some of the best hiking in the world, gorgeous oceans, wine estates and variety of different accommodation options, makes this an ideal way to pare fun and study together, whilst ‘giving back’ remains at the heart of what you do here.
