Cape Town Tourism's Board Development Fund

The Board Development Fund is one of those “good news” stories that are snapped up in media and enjoyed by readers. It’s the uplifting narrative of the Cape Town Tourism Board of Directors choosing to forego recompense in favour of establishing a fund that benefits historically disadvantaged tourism businesses.

Apart from a monetary award of R50k for each winner (there were three in 2016), mentorship, website development and other non-monetary benefits are provided to those who are selected.

Previous beneficiaries include Ozzie’s Golf Guide, Escape to the Cape, Ubizo Tours & Events, Maboneng Township Arts Experience, Lungi’s B&B and Turning Point Guesthouse.
