About Us

1 000 Tech Entrepreneurs Campaign is a year-long initiative that promotes and encourages technology entrepreneurship to South African citizens with the aim of getting more people to partake in the tech entrepreneurship journey in South Africa. We believe that if we as a country can come together to collaborate and challenge the status quo through the development of new technologies and the adoption of technical entrepreneurship at a scale we could shape an economically viable and thriving South Africa.

We envision a South Africa that is taking charge of the development of world technology innovations through technology entrepreneurship, a country that is leading Africa and the world on the technical innovation stage.
