Welcome to Wits University’s Tshimologong Precinct. Setswana for “new beginnings”, Tshimologong is one of Johannesburg’s newest high-tech addresses in the vibrant inner-city district of Braamfontein. Owned by the University of The Witwatersrand, Tshimologong is where the incubation of Digital entrepreneurs, commercialization of research and the development of high-level digital skills for students, working professionals and unemployed youth takes place.
We exist to fulfil our “Africa Rising” destiny by producing world class developers, entrepreneurs and innovators of digital technology. The Tshimologong Precinct is a digital innovation ecosystem in Braamfontein that propels entrepreneurship and grows the skills pipeline for the digital economy through collaboration with academia, corporates, government and entrepreneurs. Tshimologong provides an exemplar for similar University-based incubators across Africa.
Most exciting is the announcement that both 2018 Fak’ugesi Digital Africa Resident Joshua Chiundiza and 2017 Fak’ugesi Digital Africa Resident Kombo Chapfika – both from Zimbabwe – have been chosen to present work as artists.
