About the event:

Co-creating our city through insights, innovation and action.

The SA Innovation Summit Cape Town High Impact Series, supported by the City of Cape Town and hosted by Open Design Cape Town Festival, brings you an inspirational day session focused on ‘Creating a City of Opportunity for All’.

What a difference a day makes

How could Cape Town become a real city of opportunity? What would it take to create a city and region that allows all its people to thrive?

We invite captains of industry, thought leaders, government enablers, activists, innovators, entrepreneurs, inventors, investors and incubators to attend a power day of insights, innovative thinking and action.

An incredible panel of thought-leaders has been assembled to guide the co-creation session. We have invited the City of Cape Town, Futureworld, a Swiss Digital transformational activist, the Futures Institute of Africa, My African City, Heads of the Region and many other influential drivers of change and innovation.

We’d love your input

The insights captured on the day will be shared with cities across the globe with the help of the Futures Institute of Africa. This is the ideal platform to build real solutions.

Save the date to help co-create a smart city, brimming with opportunity. Book your ticket now. (If you would like to attend the session, but absolutely cannot afford a ticket, please let us know.)

The day will be followed by a 24-hour hackathon in Khayelitsha, intended to produce applications and solutions to meet the needs identified by the community. If you are a coder or creative and you want to participate in building these applications, book your space. Mark 19 and 20 August in your diary to share your brilliance at the Lookout Centre in Khayelitsha.

Hall of fame

In November, we will unveil a Hall of Fame to honour the companies who have raised the most venture capital, created the most impact through jobs or change in our city, or otherwise facilitated a culture of opportunity, aspiration and excellence.
