Founders Conference 2024


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 2024

Hosted by OCFO, Founders Conference is a premier event for founders in Africa where business leaders openly share strategies, innovations, and war stories from the trenches.

Our vision is to inspire, motivate, and support founders across industries
by connecting them with successful business leaders and fellow entrepreneurs. The conference brings together dynamic speakers, motivated attendees, industry-leading sponsors, and meaningful networking opportunities. The content presented is actionable, results oriented, and shared by leading founders in Africa.

As our flagship event, Founders Conference has become a pillar in the entrepreneurial ecosystem and is not to be missed by any serious founder.
