A little while ago we worked with Innovate the Cape to offer blogging workshops to a group of young highly intelligent and innovative high-school learners.
It has been a few months since then and a few weeks ago as part of 100in1day Cape Town, we got in touch and caught up with the initiative and the budding young innovators.
It was an inspirational and highly informative event where we were introduced to speakers and business leaders with unique entrepreneurial skills such as Ludwick Marishane (founder and head of Head-boy industries) South Africa’s youngest patent-filer after having invented DryBath® at the age of 17.
Innovate Showcase took place on the 26th of October at Khayelitsha Hubspace.
Click here to find out how the day unfolded and to meet the youngsters and their amazing projects which focused on finding innovative solutions for some of societies challenges.

All funds collected on the evening will go towards funding our workshops (the workshop cost of each participant is R100 including a lunch pack/snacks). The participants are from under-resourced backgrounds. We run these fundraisers to ensure that money is not something that prevents them from taking part.
Money can also be contributed towards the production of our web-series.
