The underlying network and physical infrastructure play a major role to the iHub and the tech ecosystem. We are therefore keen to build on partnerships that aim at strengthening our underlying technological and physical infrastructure.
Through these partnerships we also intend to make the iHub the nexus for Internet of Things in Africa.
These partnerships have a focus on the ecosystem within which the iHub lives. The ecosystem includes entities such as Ushahidi, BRCK, m:lab and AkiraChix as well as the communities around each of them.
These partnerships focuses on the holistic needs of the tech community and a scaled approach in how to meet those needs.
