7 Capetonian disruptors on how they changed the world of business as we know it

Disruptive innovators are constantly looking for ways to challenge existing industries in order to bring about new business models that harbor creativity.

Silicon Cape will be bringing these innovative minds under one roof to share ideas under the theme ‘Disruption Can Come from Anywhere’, on Wednesday evening.

Ellen Fischat, MD at Silicon Cape says they've brought together seven local disruptive innovators who have been doing incredible work locally and globally.

The big part of this evening is that disruption is happening whether people like it or not and is changing the way that we do business and the world of work.

It is about consumer and client meeting each other, transparency, and people understanding what value am I getting from what I give you - equalizing the playing field.
