iHub serves the tech community, by connecting organizations and people, building market relevant solutions and being ahead of the curve of innovation.
Founded in 2010, iHub is a globally recognized organization that is deeply steeped in the local tech innovation culture. It is fair to say that the iHub has been both the main catalyst for regional tech acceleration and a role model for tech hubs across emerging markets. They are nurturing the best innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem; one that constantly challenges and influences technology; one that can be replicated across the continent, as they believe that African innovation will play a critical role in shaping future technology globally.
iHub aims to become the best African support system for ICT focused tech entrepreneurs and individuals who aspire to create great companies that tackle some of their biggest challenges. They will create an environment of trust and experimentation that will be focused on the idiosyncrasies of their local ecosystem in Kenya at first, but will venture out across the continent and beyond.
The iHub will be offering three product lines
Consists of everything that matters to the community of tech entrepreneurs and those who want to become entrepreneurs or are simply looking for jobs in the tech space
iHub’s traditional consultancy business has spent the last two years working on various aspects of what they had in the innovation journey product line, which will in fact be a reverse engineered product line that will bring together many disparate services they’ve delivered in the past into one consistent offering
Aside from their fellowship program, iHub is also going to develop (outside of the iHub) an Africa Innovation Fund (AIF). The AIF will be an exclusive investment partner of iHub, and will engage, support and promote the best entrepreneurs across Africa.
