For the past 1.5 years, Investec and E-nnovate have been taking South Africa’s top entrepreneurs on global exposure trips to Israel and Silicon Valley. Applications are now open for our first-ever South African Tech Entrepreneurs Trip to Seattle, which will take place from 24-30 July 2016.
Seattle, USA, located in the Pacific Northwest, is home to 2 000 active tech start-ups, and is ranked in the top ten entrepreneurial ecosystems in the world, along with places such as Chicago, London and Tel Aviv. From 2013–14, Seattle’s available venture capital has grown more than 40% faster than the US average, and it boasts the highest concentration of software developers in the US. It’s also becoming a relocation base for Silicon Valley and international start-ups looking for an innovative environment with relatively lower operating costs than nearby Silicon Valley.
