SidebySide Township Development
WE ARE: a marketing and management agency for innovative township entrepreneurs, matching them to the tourism industry and implementing unique, hands-on experiences.

OUR MISSION: Create the market access township entrepreneurs so deserve, thereby integrating the South African economy and catalyzing entrepreneurship in the townships.


We're bringing town and township together, side by side.

• We think no visit to Cape town is complete without experiencing the talent and innovation of the townships.
• We’re making that talent and innovation readily accessible through our online marketplace and unlocking it through our management and implementation services.
• Anything from a small dinner in the townships to a mega conference, we will make it happen.



You’re sitting on gold. You’re sitting on a pot of gold, my friend.
