Resolution Circle was established as a company in 2012. We are owned by the University of Johannesburg and collaborate on a wide front. We use the commercialisation of technology as a platform to provide experiential learning to technology interns. We form a bridge between universities and full-scale commercial operations by focussing primarily (but not exclusively) on being a technology incubator rather than a business incubator.
At Resolution Circle our activities benefit the South African economy, specifically by decreasing the trade deficit and creating local jobs.
We are an independent commercial company, which funds its operations through commercial activities. We do not receive subsidies for operational expenses. While we verify that all activities are economically sustainable, we believe that this ensures closer alignment with industry and resulting guaranteed efficiency.
Training and development activities are focused on applied knowledge that will provide economic value. Our vision is not to compete in the industry, but rather to support and enable the industry.
We have registered 18 provisional patents.
Delivered more than 40 products in the market.
Trained more than 350 engineering interns with the potential growth to 600 in 2016.
We established a sophisticated technology development ecosystem executing an “idea-to-barcode” concept.
