Build, Connect, Accelerate
Our Vision Our Mission
The Barn enables people to start successful businesses, develop great products and thus help change the world. It drives social and economic prosperity by leading Cape Town’s and the region’s innovation mission.
We envision Cape Town and its surrounding communities as prospering through enhanced employment prospects, local wealth creation and retention and an enriched cultural and social environment. In realizing this vision, we foster and promote entrepreneurship and innovation.
The Barn helps create successful global businesses from the region’s science, technology, design and social innovation.
The Barn fosters an ecosystem providing resources – people, programmes, physical infrastructure, fund and networks – to ensure that critical innovation happens. We stimulate, identify and harness great ideas, nurture their development and guide the transformation of those ideas into reality. We measure our success through the companies that emerge, become sustainable and grow after interacting with us.
Integrity, Respect, Service, Imagination, Passion, Accountability, Excellence
