“Johannesburg has recently emerged as a growing ecosystem for startups and entrepreneurs in Africa, particularly in the tech industry. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to create a comprehensive guide of resources for aspiring founders wanting to do business in South Africa’s largest city.” Sissel Hansen, Founder and CEO of Startup Guide, said adding that Johannesburg, South Africa’s largest city is emerging as a key innovation hub for startups.
