WeThinkCode Gets $4.5m from BCX for SA Expansion

South African incubator WeThinkCode has secured ZAR60 million (US$4,490,000) in financial support from ICT solutions provider BCX, to expand its Johannesburg-based operations and launch in Cape Town.

Disrupt Africa reported the launch of WeThinkCode was announced in 2015 with applications opening to the inaugural two-year tuition fee-free software developer training programme.  

The first cohort of 120 students was selected by mid-2016, and WeThinkCode opened the doors to its dedicated Johannesburg-based campus.

BCX has now committed ZAR60 million (US$4,490,000) over three years to allow for the expansion of the Johannesburg campus – to house a further 200 students -, cover tuition fees for students, and enable the launch of a Cape Town-based programme.
