SUGSA Sponsorship Opportunities

The Scrum User Group of South Africa (SUGSA) is the first official Scrum Alliance user group in Africa. SUGSA is a non-profit group, run by a committee of volunteers. We look to local businesses using agile for sponsorship in order to create a thriving community that benefits us all.

SUGSA’s mission is to build a community of practitioners, of varying levels of experience. Its aim is to improve the agile practices in South Africa by sharing experiences of success and failure, good practices, and expert presentations.

In order to achieve this aim, SUGSA organises monthly events in Cape Town and Johannesburg at which key speakers offer to share their knowledge and experience in a related field. Our events are often interactive and encourage participation from anyone attending.

The events take place on the last Thursday of every month at 6pm in the evening in Cape Town and on the second Wednesday of every month at 6pm in Johannesburg. Drinks and snacks are served, allowing people to exchange ideas and network.

These events have grown in popularity over the last years and currently attract between 60 and 100 people at each event. Attendees are usually agile practitioners from a variety of roles: developers, testers, analysts, Product Owners, Scrum Masters and managers. It also attracts those interested in learning about agile who are not yet practicing it in their current environment.
