iHub: Nairobi’s Tech Innovation Hub

As a young, mostly technology business in Kenya, our main challenge was getting was getting a good enough working environment. We badly needed a place where we could get cheap internet and a “tech” environment. I suspect that many, many Kenyan tech. start ups out there face this same problem.

What if you could get a work environment with high speed internet, free of charge? What if, at the same time, you could rub shoulders with some of the best tech. people in Kenya and potential financial backers? Sounds good? Well, that is exactly what iHub if offering. Right here in Nairobi!

Erik from WhiteAfrican puts it this way:

Nairobi’s Innovation Hub for the technology community – is here! It’s an open space for the technologists, investors, tech companies and hackers in the area. This space is a tech community facility with a focus on young entrepreneurs, web and mobile phone programmers and designers. It is part open community workspace (co-working), part investor and VC hub and part incubator.

The iHub will have a redundant 10Mbs connection, hardwired and WiFi, and it’s freely available to any tech person in Nairobi to use once they become members. Membership is free, our only requirement is that you are indeed involved in the tech space as a programmer, web designer or mobile application developer.

Nice eh? Please read more about it by clicking here. As Erik says, this is only as good as we make it. If you think you can help make iHub a smashing success, come forth and help out.
