The Hague Tech goes Capetown

After our successful international outreach to San Francisco in September, where we signed a partnership with tech community The Vault, it is time for a new international step.

After our successful international outreach to San Francisco in September, where we signed a partnership with tech community The Vault, it is time for a new international step.

The Hague Tech is an international community in the heart of the Dutch city of The Hague. It is here where talent, businesses, research institutions and government bodies work together by using technology to help build a better society. The Hague Tech was recently nominated for The Hague Business Award for its place where ‘hipsters, hackers & hustlers’ gather to bring innovation to life and for making a genuine contribution to economic growth.

So it is not strange that The Hague Tech choose Cape Town for its preferred destination. From 25th and 30th of November 2017 The Hague Tech is visiting Cape Town with the ambition to set up a , a bridge between The Hague and Cape Town. This will allow the community The Hague Tech, currently consisting of about 96 members, a great partnership to cocreate solutions with South African partners to change the world. Because that is ultimately the goal of the Tech members in the Hague Tech hub.

We are interested in meeting Cape Town’s copious tech-talent; meeting founders and technology evangelists; co-working; discovering spaces, accelerators, incubators, experience labs and everything else local start-up-ecosystem-related. So if you are interested in meeting us, do you know people we should meet? Let me know!

In return we can offer South African talent and start-ups a soft landing in The Hague, including office space and warm introductions to investors, launching customers and subsidy partners and the rest of the Dutch start-up ecosystem.
