Applications have opened for the second edition of the Telkom Futuremakers InnoTech programme, a 20-week “from concept to market” accelerator that will take place at the Bandwidth Barn in Cape Town.
Disrupt Africa reported last July the Bandwidth Barn launched InnoTech, focused on web and mobile application development, software development and design and gaming, and looks to stimulate the creation of new businesses and support the growth of existing startups through the uptake of technology and innovation capability.
The programme was rolled out as part of a three-year multimillion rand partnership with part state-owned operator Telkom, aimed at developing and operating accelerator programmes for tech entrepreneurs.
Applications are now open for the second edition of the programme, with the Bandwidth Barn also hosting a full day of ideation and creative thinking in the lead-up to InnoTech 2016, allowing participants to learn more about the programme and what they stand to gain.
This will take place of Friday, May 6 at the Bandwidth Barn, with interested parties able to email to reserve a space.
“The tools that you’ll use in this interactive workshop will not only produce great ideas on the day, but give you the skills to see opportunities and develop exciting solutions in the future,” the Bandwidth Barn said.
“This ideation session is open to anyone who is interested, but is also a chance for InnoTech applicants to show their creative and critical skills.”
