Founders Conference 2021


Founders Events

Being entrepreneurs ourselves, we felt a gap in the ecosystem in Cape Town for credible, founder-lead events. Events where entrepreneurs can connect with peers and learn from those who have gone before them to scale up their businesses.

This is why we created Founders Events - the originator of our cornerstone events Cape Town Founders Conference, FundRaise Con, Scale-Up Con, and Deep Dive.

Through these events, we will continue to serve the entrepreneurs building great companies in Cape Town. Check out our other events and be sure to diarise.

Founders Conference 2021

The annual Founders Conference normally takes place in the heart of beautiful Cape Town during Global Entrepreneurship Week. However, in the light of Covid-19, we decided to host Founders Conference as a virtual conference this year.

The conference brings together the top business people, investors and entrepreneurs in South Africa forΒ powerful networking, learning and inspiration.

Keynotes and panel discussions are facilitated by top founders who have walked the walk, in celebration of the incredibly brutal but wildly rewarding journey that is entrepreneurship. This is one of the biggest gatherings of entrepreneurs on the African continent in Global Entrepreneurship Week - not to be missed by any serious founder.
