I have never met Renier and the team from The Open Letter - in fact, the Capetonian Cool in me would probably walk straight past them in public! - but I never ignore a fresh newsletter in my inbox. It's possibly the best source for current and meaningful insights into the local innovation industry, and it's delivered in a way that always makes it stand out. Keep up the good work!
