For the last seven years, the iHub has increasingly become a nexus point, not only for the tech community in the region but also for the global technology ecosystem. We have hosted many panel discussions for the tech community in Nairobi to engage with, learn from, and be inspired by well known and respected local and global thought leaders, particularly in technology.
Below, we have sampled some of these panels from our two main eventsDevCraft and PIVOT East, that you might find interesting. Some are pretty long, but you can listen to them, say in the office, in the background as you walk or in traffic.
