Several of the We Think Code 2021 cohort graduates from Cape Town started their #entrepreneurship journey today (4 April 2022)!
“Thanks to our sponsor partner, E Squared Investments that has supported us in opening alternative career pathways at the end of the programme for our grads, today we launched a pilot directing #WeThinkCode grads into entrepreneurship”.
In collaboration with global venture building experts, Seedstars the We Think Code grads will embark on a 6-month program to build impact-oriented ventures to tackle South African issues. All the best to the programme pioneers and to the Seedstars team as they enable our techies to become impactful startup founders.
Our Head of Social Entrepreneurship, Cheryl Jacob, says, “It is very exciting that after two years of robust debating… nudging (sometimes a little hard) and lots of thinking and rethinking with Dylan Richts (thank you for your patience and trust) – #entrepreneurship as a pathway has become a reality for this WTC_ cohort and hopefully many more. Watch this space — these rockstars are going to do amazing things!”
