Welcome to Tshimologong Digital Innovation Precinct. Setswana for “new beginnings”, Tshimologong is a 100% Wits University-owned Digital Hub based in the inner-city district of Braamfontein, where the incubation of start-ups, the 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.
