About The Cape Innovation & Technology Initiative (CiTi)
The Cape Innovation & Technology Initiative (CiTi) is a Non-Profit Company with a mission to build a futureproof, inclusive society through technology and innovation.
We do so by creating globally competitive tech and innovation sectors to enable sustainable economic growth and greater employment. CiTi was established in 1999 and operates at the intersection of business, government and society to positively shape the future of the economy and society through the use of innovation and technology.
We see this model as the key driver of systemic regional change and progression. Our success in building thriving regional technology ecosystems has been recognised in a recent Endeavor Insight report, titled Evaluation & Network Analysis of the Cape Town – Stellenbosch Tech Sector. The report concluded that “Cape Town is arguably the most productive and impactful tech hub in sub- Saharan Africa.”
