The novel increase of tech hubs across Africa shows how technology clusters create mutually strengthening snowballs as initial preconditions for success. The number of the continent’s known tech hubs has grown from 314 in 2016 to 442 in 2018 and 618 as of mid-2019. This suggests that multi-stakeholder ecosystems work better than individual initiatives organized and managed by individuals or governments alone.
We at TecHub, therefore, believe that hubs represent a lot of potential in terms of creating synergies and facilitating growth across the entrepreneurial ecosystem. Companies are drawn to cities like Lagos because of the large pool of available tech talent and tech ecosystems that is growing faster than anywhere else on the continent.
TecHub offers exposure, networking, and a platform for opportunities to early-stage ventures as well as fully operating companies that seek to get connected, funded and empowered. We do this by creating a platform to collaborate, achieve commercial sustainability, share knowledge, and partner with key stakeholders to build the tech and innovation ecosystems necessary to blitz the global market.
TecHub works to bridge the gap enabling strong partnerships that support the growth of commercially sustainable technology services and products.
