After serving as Investment Officer at the City of Cape Town, Tim Harris recently took over as CEO of Wesgro, a position previously occupied by Nils Flaaten.
Harris says we already have a lot of big businesses operating from Cape Town, but we need to let the international community know that Cape Town is a world class city capable of hosting such big players.
He also says that there are some perceptions of Cape Town that need to be addressed, such as the city being too focused on leisure and not on business, or that while we may have entrepreneurs the big companies are to be found in Johannesburg.
Wesgro plans to drive entrepreneurship so that more small businesses can be created and then nurtured and grown.
