Together with Red Bull we are empowering the next generation to innovate with purpose
Dimension Data supports the creation of sustainable communities underpinned by the premise that using technology for good is the perfect alignment of elevating lives through the mutual power of technology and education.
Red Bull Basement supports social innovators using technology to tackle social and environmental issues at universities, encouraging the next generation of diverse thinking and innovation. Dimension Data remains committed to finding ways for technology and education to collide, continuously upskilling young minds and supporting platforms that empower the next generation to find solutions to world problems.
Young tech innovators and student entrepreneurs around the world are invited to innovate on campus today and disrupt the world tomorrow by collaborating to find creative solutions to a better tomorrow. To that end, our partnership with Red Bull Basement enables us to empower the next generation to innovate with purpose.
Our purpose is to give people the power to do more and, given that intention, we have made a commitment to our communities to support the creators of tomorrow to build their aspirations of bringing more of their solutions, and to change the world. As we make changes with one person at a time, we are aware that the knock-on effects of the individual changes have a far-reaching impact as they affect entire communities. This demonstrates how important the next generation is in creating a sustainable business environment and further contributing to the sustainable development of our communities - showcasing the insurmountable power of technology when used to drive positive change.
As the Official Technology Services Partner, our parent company NTT Ltd worked with Red Bull Basement to realise the potential for scale and inclusion through a virtual platform from NTT Ltd.’s Cloud Communications Division – virtualising the event and breaking down location-specific and physical space barriers to entry. At Dimension Data, we hosted local networking events that inspired students to innovate with purpose using technology for good to make a meaningful impact on their campuses and possibly the world. The students received mentorship sessions throughout the competition, and the local team supported as judges to the entries. Together with NTT Ltd, we selected the best idea to represent South Africa.
