In true #cocreateSA style, Startup Safari from South Africa and Dutchbasecamp are working together to provide training, mentorship, coaching and bootcamps to assist Dutch and South African companies in achieving the goals. Isabel Brouwer, Dutch BaseCamp Director says, ”The program is unique because it is hands-on and gives participants a real understanding of what it takes to scale to South Africa”.
Consul General Bonnie Horbach is passionate about creating connections between the Dutch and South Africans and says, “The focus is to support Dutch businesses in South Africa by establishing relevant connections between South African and Dutch partners. We encourage Dutch businesses to adopt the #cocreateSA approach and build and invest in long-term relationships and establish mutually beneficial partnerships.”
The successful participants will be given the opportunity for international and local media exposure through the Dutch Consulate’s vast media network across multiple platforms in addition to participating at Africa’s prime startup event, the Innovation Summit , taking place between 6-8 September 2017.
