Net Prophet is back this year. Net Prophet was started in Cape Town, South Africa by the RAMP Foundation which is a non-profit entity created by the RAMP Group as a means for social investment within the local Internet based economy.
NetProphet is meant to take the most innovative, successful, creative, ambitious thinkers and entrepreneurs in the Internet space, and ask them to share their stories, ideas and predictions for the future in a format that is fresh, relevant and engaging.
The event will be taking place on 12 May at Mutual Park in Cape Town. The event is in its third year and has established itself as the biggest technology startup event on the South African calendar. The line-up of speakers reads like a who-is-who among the successful entrepreneurs. The speakers will seek to share, inspire and equip other entrepreneurs across Africa to promote a technology rich culture.
The event’s Platinum sponsor, Old Mutual, maintains an ‘open source’ philosophy by offering the conference as a free to attend event. In Rob Gilmour, Director of the RAMP Foundation’s, own words: “The web itself was built on the power of free knowledge and access. Providing a conference of this calibre free of charge is a continuation of this philosophy, and demonstrates that we are dedicated to real change.”
This years event will also display Africa’s first all electric car, the Joule. The Car goes into mass production at the end of 2013. Diana Blake, Sales and Marketing Director, Optimal Energy, will take delegates through the success story of the Joule.
