ICT: France & South Africa launch the Digital Content Hub

Next week will be a crucial time for the French Development Agency (AFD) as it will be signing a three-year grant worth €950 000. This will be its first investment in digital innovation in South Africa. The money will go into funding Digital Content Hub of Tshimologong Digital Innovation Precincts. Based in Braamfontein, Digital Content Hub will be launched on 9th July 2018. The hub started as a result of the partnership between French Institute of South Africa’s (IFAS) Digital Lab Africa initiative and Tshimologong. The initiative will aim at supporting startups in Africa involved in multimedia content. The launching will have the attendance of Christophe Farnaud, the French ambassador. During the launch, AFD will sign a three-year grant worth R14.5-million (€950 000). Tshimologong will use the grant in expanding its activities to bring on board audiovisual content creation that includes video games, holograms, animation, virtual reality and augmented reality. The Digital Content Hub will be under the management of Tshimologong in partnership with French multimedia and creative firms.
