Our hubs serve as innovation centers and hackerspaces for the tech community, supporting innovators to develop market-relevant solutions that are scalable both within Africa and globally

Our Work

iHUB members can apply to receive mentorship, business support services, access to startup and product development-related workshops and events, as well as get a chance to access venture funding through connections with the local ecosystem. 

Over the last 12 years, we have engaged investors, government bodies, and private organizations through our events, demo days and programs. We have a network of over 1,200 corporate executives (Corporates, Multinationals, Development agencies, etc.) that we have access to. Additionally, have curated an extensive investor database that runs to approximately 998 investors globally and has directly engaged with around 200 investors.

The role of the iHUB is to be the best African support system for technology entrepreneurs who aspire to create great companies addressing the unique challenges in the African Market. We believe in innovating for Africa's prosperity, and through our efforts, we aim to catalyze positive change and foster a thriving ecosystem.

With a strong belief that iHUB plays quite an essential role in leapfrogging African tech entrepreneurship and their companies and we recognize that this is only possible by collaborating and partnering with local and global stakeholders.
