Today’s Friday shoutout goes to the MTN Solution Space at the UCT Graduate School of Business. Over the past few weeks I’ve been writing my thesis here. It’s a really great environment, and plays host to a bunch of academics, startups and professionals. They also host some really great events, such as info sessions on Impact Investing or Social Impact Bonds. As per the website:

“The Solution Space is our distinct approach and model. We create a third space between academia and industry where business can escape the pressures of today to advance new ideas through piloting cutting-edge concepts with Africa’s brightest and most creative minds, and universities can shape research and learning opportunities that are connected to relevant and real world challenges.”

There is a second solution space out in Philippi Village, which aims to connect the business school to parts of the informal and township business scene. Once I’ve finished my thesis work I’m planning on heading out there and exploring it πŸ™‚

So thanks to the people at the Solution Space for providing such a great place to work and learn. It’s become one of my favourite places in the city πŸ™‚
