Launch48 comes to South Africa!

Launch48 is an international event that brings people of all skill sets together to create ideas, build products and launch a web or mobile startup in just 48 hours. It gives people the opportunity to be part of a startup, something that might just be the next big thing. A panel of mentors, including Simon McCann, the commercial director of Launch48 and Oxygen Accellerator, will give their advice and support to help bring the ideas to life.


We’re happy to be a sponsor for Launch48’s African début. We love these incubation events; seeing a lot of people, ideas and talent working toward creating something is a beautiful (and much needed) thing.

As a startup ourselves, we know how difficult and expensive the first few months of operation can be. This is why we’re also happy to offer six months of free online payment processing to ten of the Launch48 startups (needless to say, some T’s & C’s apply).

See the video below for an idea of what happens at a Launch48 weekend:

If you’re interested in coding, design, marketing, finance, networking or the startup landscape in general (think: lots of pizza, beer, coffee, and ideas bouncing around) we’d love to meet you this weekend, May 17-19, at the Bandwidth Barn in Woodstock.

Tickets can be purchased through You can also follow the event at @Launch48CT.
