AfriLabs welcomes 11 new Hubs into its Pan-African Network

AfriLabs; The largest network of over 50 technology and innovation hubs across over 20 African countries has expanded by 11 new hub members, also extending its membership base to two new African countries – Chad and Democratic Republic of Congo.

AfriLabs, founded in 2011 with just five member hubs, was established to build a community around technology hubs in Africa. Since then, AfriLabs has been working through these hubs to build the African entrepreneurial ecosystem by supporting the development of start-ups, technology, and innovation, while also fostering partnerships between tech hubs across the different regions. AfriLabs since its inception has now grown from five hubs to fifty-six hubs across over 20 African countries.

We are pleased to have these new hubs join our network. – Anna Ekeledo, Head of Secretariat, AfriLabs.
