Cape Town has joined forces with Stockholm – the birthplace of fast-growing tech companies like Skype, Spotify and Klarna to launch Cape Town / Stockholm Connect (CSC), a platform that will bring together companies, developers, customers, investors, entrepreneurs, and institutions from across the two cities via a series of activities. The CSC initiative, which kicks off with a launch event today, will also serve as a meeting point and provide participants with well-organised matchmaking opportunities and company visits. The launch event features a diverse group of speakers sharing their insights about the startup landscape in both South Africa and Sweden, with two panel discussions exploring the opportunities offered by the two cities. “It’s time to accelerate and intensify business exchange between Stockholm and Cape Town. Geographical boundaries don’t exist in the digital world, but we have identified gaps when it comes to knowledge and understanding about the respective markets. By connecting these two nodes of digital excellence, we want to close those gaps and create new business opportunities,” said Håkan Juholt, the Swedish Ambassador to South Africa.
