SOLUTION SPACE PHILLIPI CAMPUS
Spearheading engagement beyond the traditional spaces of the university.
The UCT GSB Solution Space Philippi hub in the community of Philippi, Cape Town, was established in a deliberate effort to deepen our roots and relevance as an African business school that is seeking to develop more socially relevant solutions to the challenges of our context.
Spearheaded by the UCT GSB Solution Space, the Philippi hub is the first community hub to be established by University of Cape Town in its 178-year existence. The UCT GSB Solution Space is based at Philippi Village, a mixed use 6 000m2 entrepreneurial development zone at the epicentre of Nyanga, Gugulethu, Mitchell's Plain and Khayelitsha.
The development, was initiated with the vision of creating economic opportunity through the active inclusion of those who are excluded from the mainstream of development, and the UCT GSB has been involved in these conversations from the outset. The founding sponsor of the Bertha Centre at the UCT GSB, the Bertha Foundation, is one of two founding partners in the initiative; the other being a Cape Town-based NGO The Business Place.
PHILLIPI CAMPUS OFFERING
