Our Mission

Is transforming the culture of tech innovation in the Durbs into start-up culture that is contagious with the belief that this one way of contributing to and improving our economy, solving real-world problems, improve organizations and society through the power of crowds and collaboration to co-create, design and innovate a better tomorrow for the Durbs

Our Story

It is evident that the fusion of technology is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres as we embrace the 4th Industrial Revolution.

The intrinsic power of Crowds together with Collaboration and Co-Creation is key for today, and fundamental for tomorrow, thus Silicon Durbs was born. We have learned that if given the resources to connect and collaborate their combined power is much greater than the sum of its parts.

The problem that we are addressing relative to start-ups in Durbs is we lack a voice, lack collaboration with each other and industry, lack knowledge of social, economic and industry trends and have limited or no access to investors. On the flip side investors are finding it a challenge to find promising startups
