GWI was appointed to implement Technology Hub projects at four locations in KwaZulu-Natal. These project sites are in Port Shepstone, Pietermaritzburg, Newcastle and Richards Bay.
The concept of Techno Hubs is to attract investment from organisations that are within the Research, Innovation and Technology “space” of development and operation. This concept attracts higher education institutions to locate satellite campuses at these locations so that business and academia can develop partnerships.
Our appointment on this project was as an implementing agent. We were tasked with using the funds secured to provide the infrastructure that would make the sites “development ready” and develop marketing and branding to attract investors, tenants and end-user clients to locate their businesses and organisations within these Technology Innovative Hubs.
