AfriLabs, the largest network of technology and innovation hubs, that now counts over 60 hubs spread out across 27 countries in Africa, has just expanded that network by seven more new hubs. Effectively expanding its membership base to three new countries on the continent; Somalia, Djibouti, and Sierra Leone.
Since its inception in 2011, the network has grown steadily over the years. At the beginning of this year, it welcomed eleven new hubs into its network making a total of 18 new members so far in 2017.
The new members of the AfriLabs network are GE Garage Nigeria, Ecolia Labs Cameroon, Kumasi Hive Ghana, iRise Hub Somalia, aLabs Sierra Leone, CTID (Centre de Technologie, d’Innovation pour le Development) Djibouti, Centre d’innovation de Lubumbashi Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
We are beyond ecstatic about AfriLabs expanding its network. We look forward to carrying out more projects with our partners and members across Africa to support these hubs and the start-ups, entrepreneurs, and innovators in their communities achieve even greater impact. We look forward to a borderless and advanced Africa and members of our network collaborating to make this dream a reality – Anna Ekeledo, Executive Director, AfriLabs.
