Advanced facilities, a welcoming atmosphere and a convenient location make Rise Cape Town an ideal base for your FinTech business.

It isn’t like the co-working spaces you’ve seen before. Rise Cape Town offers you room to spread out, share your ideas and collaborate in a fresh and dynamic setting.

We designed Rise Cape Town specifically to help FinTech entrepreneurs work, meet and collaborate.

Inspired by Cape Town's dynamic art scene, we’ve used local materials and manufacturers to help us create a unique environment that’s both friendly and productive.

We think you’ll love the meeting rooms, the 100-seat auditorium and the video conferencing facilities. We think you’ll also enjoy the fresh coffee and the wonderful view of Table Mountain from every desk.

You’ll get plenty of opportunities to learn from the events we organise, as well as contribute your own. But we think you’ll keep coming back because of the open atmosphere and the people you meet. They’re FinTech entrepreneurs like you, who can help you translate your ideas into action and take your business to the next level.

The co-working space is fantastic. The staff are quite good about making sure the noise level is just right. The only distraction is the Cape Town wind, but we can’t change that!
