#SiliconBurgPOT Vol.6 Networking Event

'Silicon Burg International (Pty) Ltd' is proud to host 'The Power of Technology Networking Event Series.’

Mingle amongst successful business owners, entrepreneurs and innovators where we will talk business/technology and, yes, everyone will get an opportunity to grow their network.

At #SiliconBurgPOT, we are always looking to add more value. At our last event, we started a new section called ‘Airtime.’ Here, either established businesses or aspiring entrepreneurs will get 120 seconds to pitch. Thereafter, we, as a community, will pose questions or provide feedback. If you are interested in this, please email a 1000 character description of your business or idea to: Make sure you are there on the night to see if you get selected.

In this next event, we invite you to a pre-launch event of 'Workshop17 Firestation', in the heart of Rosebank, offering private and semi-private offices. We will also be soft-launching an app.

We are honoured and privileged to announce our main keynote speaker: Mike Sharman. The topic for the evening is: 'Media and Virality'.
