In London, England, the Caban Capital team were invited to attend the Africa Technology Business Forum. The Forum was a one day conference showcasing the most exciting technology opportunities that are unfolding across the African continent. Caban Investments UK CEO, Ben Botes, participated in a round table discussion on investing in the South African FinTech sector.

 

The Small Business Indaba which was collocated with the Manufacturing Indaba in Ekurhuleni, South Africa, brought to the fore the very pressing need to create jobs - more than a third of young South Africans in the labour force are unemployed. And the manufacturing sector say that they are one of the best bets to solve the issue. Caban Executive, Jared Pillai, participated in a panel discussion on the topic of, "Access to finance for small manufacturers and innovative ways to finance their businesses and product development".

 

In Cape Town, South Africa, the Caban Investments team were invited to attend a high level showcase day of the Barclays Accelerator powered by Techstars. The event was held at the Waterfront and whilst the venue, network and entertainment were phenomenal the companies presented eclipsed it all. At the showcase day the SA Caban team got to meet the individuals behind this highly successful incubation programme and good relationships were struck up.
