The iHub, launched in 2010, provides a home for Kenya’s tech community and allows developers and entrepreneurs to connect and work on ideas.

It currently has more than 16,000 members, and recently appointed a new managing director. Disrupt Africa reported in September of last year the hub was to relocate from its Ngong Road home as it sought more space having raised funding in order to help it scale operations. A new home was found in Hurlingham in December, and the co-working space was completed in June of this year.

Every African tech hub for itself in quest for sustainability

“This is done on a tech hub by tech hub basis. Each is figuring out their own business models for continued support and growth.”

By Tom Jackson 7 Aug 2017



The iHub is now inviting local developers and entrepreneurs to come and work from the space every Friday this month at no cost.

“Open days give you the perfect opportunity to test the iHub space. Come in, grab a sit, work and experience the day as an iHub member,” the iHub said.
