CLICK HERE TO ENTER!

All societies face challenges and are increasingly turning to social innovation to find creative and workable solutions. The Tygerberg region is no different and the GTP is looking to social innovators and entrepreneurs to help find solutions to challenges facing the region.

We have identified some of the challenges facing the Tygerberg region, which include but are not limited to:

  • unemployment
  • homelessness
  • crime & unsafe spaces
  • drug abuse
  • urban grime and litter
  • property value degradation
  • accommodation issues
  • urban regeneration
  • walkability

In an effort to find solutions to these challenges, we are launching GTP’s Social Innovation Competition 2017. The request is that participants develop and create Innovative Solutions, ideas or project proposals to address one or a set of social challenges faced in the region, with a specific focus on Bellville.

Solutions can take the form of an app / a technology / a series of events / a workshop / a business.

For example:

  • A great idea that is project ready, but needs some support.
  • A technology that solves a local issue
  • A start-up business that can assist in providing solutions
  • A research project that leads to transformation and innovation.

* The Winner stands a chance of receiving R50 000 in marketing and incubation support, while two runners-up will receive support to the value of R15 000 each.

Entries close on 21 June 2017. Shortlisted entrants will need to pitch their idea to the GTP on 23 June 2017. Finalists will be given a chance to pitch their idea to a panel of experts on 27 June 2017. Terms & conditions apply.
