The tech hub at the centre of Cape Town’s tech scene, Bandwidth Barn, has its very own branch of multinational analyst, audit and accountancy firm PwC, thanks to a deal that will see the global giant set up shop in the shared workspace. PwC, whose main South Africa offices are in Sunninghill, Joburg, is taking up residence in the shared workspace because it’s after new business from the start-ups and small businesses who work or pass through the Barn on a daily basis.

It’s a smart move from PwC – nee PriceWaterhouseCoopers – which focussed on Cape Town as the leading place for investment and innovation in Africa in its Digital Gateway to Africa report. Either the firm’s onto something, or someone up high is really tired of Sunninghill traffic and wants to spend some time by the sea.
