Township Challenge

The SmartXchange KwaMashu Digital Hub calls for innovative solutions to challenges affecting the lives of our people living within the townships.

The COVID-19 Global Pandemic has disrupted all our lives and we call upon innovators to disrupt the disruptions caused by this pandemic. This pandemic has created a great opportunity for us to be innovative.

NEVER LET A GOOD CRISIS GO TO WASTE!

It is against this backdrop that the SmartXchange KwaMashu Digital Hub calls for innovative solutions to challenges affecting the lives of our people living within the townships. Townships have historically been economic hubs with massive potential, and it is time that we now create a conducive environment for the township economy to flourish while also impacting positively on both the lives of our people and the environment.

This innovation challenge will also include a series of workshops aimed at helping participants to better understand the challenges identified through Design Thinking, and thereafter innovate magic solutions to the challenge. The workshops will include technical solution development, where SmartXchange will support the innovators in the development of their solutions.

SmartXchange will also offer a full range of support services, inclusive of financial support, as we incubate your Start-Up to develop into a fully-fledged business at the Kwa Mashu digital Hub. The online applications are available on all social media platforms and our website and the closing date is 25th September 2020.
