Accelerate Cape Town was established in 2007 to help fast track sustainable, inclusive economic growth in the Cape Town region. A private sector-led business leadership organisation, it counts more than 40 of South Africa’s most influential corporates among its members.
We have worked with Accelerate Cape Town since January 2008 when we started by establishing its first CEO, Guy Lundy, as a Cape Town thought leader. From as early as 2010, social media formed part of our campaign.
In 2012 we helped to introduce Accelerate Cape Town’s current CEO, Chris Whelan, to the market and successfully established his media profile in his first year. Our work with this dynamic team involves furthering its thought leadership positions, amplifying its advocacy and informing on the outcomes of its many interventions directed at stimulating sustainable economic growth.
