Accelerate Cape Town is a business leadership organisation representing top-tier corporate business in the Cape Town city region. Established in 2006, we provide a forum for corporate business to connect and catalyse action to position Cape Town for growing economic success as a globally recognised business destination in Africa. We achieve this by:
- Connecting Business, Government and Higher Education to grow relationships and catalyse action through our extensive networking and events programme.
- Conceptualising programmes and accelerating initiatives to provoke action-oriented discussion on topical economic issues.
- Providing a conduit for private sector participation in larger government-driven initiatives, as well as ensuring business continuity in the event of political upheaval.
- Advocating for policies and practices supportive of economic growth and representing the views of business.
