Just a few weeks ago, MTC-Johannesburg opened its doors to more than 260 key stakeholders, including media, partners, government officials and select customers. The Minister of Science and Technology, Derek Hanekom, officially cut the ribbon alongside Mteto Nyati, Managing Director of Microsoft South Africa.
“This center is all about collaboration and building an entire ecosystem of innovation. We want to dramatically speed up the pace of innovation, and help our customers and partners slash the time it takes to get solutions and applications to market,” said Nyati.
“There has never been a better time for businesses, government and youth to develop solutions that can address a range of challenges. Technology hubs like these can only enhance our capacity to provide innovative solutions to the most pressing social and business challenges facing our country and continent,” said Hanekom.
