In 2008 RLabs was birthed in a marginalised community known as Bridgetown, Cape Town. Our passion is solely to create systems and environments where the lives of many can be impacted, where individuals may find empowerment and transformation can occur through hope, technology, innovation, training and economic opportunities.
In Cape Town specifically where RLabs began, our work has impacted the lives of more than 100,000 community members who have directly accessed RLabs skills training and economic empowerment opportunities.
RLabs have provided consulting services to a variety of public and private sector organizations. Our extensive expertise in emerging markets, product development and innovation strategy has led us to work with partners such as BBC, Media24, UNWomen, Western Cape Government, DFID, Mozilla and Facebook.
