Cape Town program participants can opt to live in Connect-123 housing. Most interns and volunteers on our housing program live in a large, centrally-located residential apartment building called Perspectives. The building has 24-hour security, small roof-top gym and pool and possible indoor parking. The apartments, which all have two bedrooms and two bathrooms, are clean and comfortable, have a fully equipped kitchen, TV, DVD and pay-as-you-go wireless internet access (roughly $1 to $2/ hour). Bed linen and towels are supplied and twice-per-month cleaning service is included. At any one time, 30 to 60 Connect-123 Cape Town program participants share in apartments in Perspectives and spaces are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. If you don’t wish to stay in Perspectives our team can advise you on the best accommodation options to suit your requirements. Other options for Cape Town interns can include house or apartment share with local professionals or homestay with a Cape Town family.

The future of work is changing. The globalized future holds big risks but also incredible opportunity, and that opportunity will be reserved for those who can approach problems from a fresh angle, combine ideas in a new way, and identify and capitalize on unexpected developments.

Here’s what that means: In the future, no matter what it says on your business card, you will need to think like an entrepreneur.

Connect-123 has partnered with Corkscrew Startup School, which has taken these big concepts and turned them into a powerful program that will reframe the way you think about ideas, your job, and even your career — no matter what field you choose.

The Innovation Experienceship allows you to travel, learn, and gain experience over the course of an intense four weeks. By combining rigorous workshop-based training with real world practice, you will develop key skills for the job market of the future. You will develop a business idea and build a professional portfolio. You will learn how to solve problems creatively, think laterally, present with confidence, and lead teams.

Whether you are still in school, embarking on your career, or about to launch the next great startup, your fastest path to success leads through the Innovation Experienceship.
