Growing jobs through high-tech startups and skills development Over the past year Wits University, through its JCSE, has been driving an initiative to promote the creation of successful ICT Startups. The “Digital Technology Innovation Zone” is being established in a row of 5 buildings in Juta Street, Braamfontein, close to the University’s main campus. The Zone will provide an exciting environment that will attract students and a broad spectrum of other residents of Johannesburg with an interest in digital technology innovation and entrepreneurship. Various activities and programmes, such as Hackathons and Challenges, will be run with the aim of developing skills, encouraging innovation and promoting the development of new enterprises. All of the JCSE’s existing skills development initiatives will also be run in the Zone.The area in which the Zone is being established has been named the “Tshimologong Precinct”, from the seTswana word for “new beginnings”. Creating the Zone will become a catalyst for urban regeneration in that part of central Johannesburg.
