Afrilabs Annual Gathering for Innovation Hubs in Africa

Afrilabs Annual Gathering for Innovation Hubs in Africa
The AfriLabs a network of all innovation hubs in Africa hosts Annual Gathering which provides a unique opportunity for tech hubs in the AfriLabs network and other stakeholders in the African tech ecosystem like local innovators (entrepreneurs), corporates, investors, academia and developmental agencies to convene, network and share knowledge.
The 3rd edition of the AfriLabs Annual Gathering 2018 was held on 11th – 13th October 2018 at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The theme was ‘Innovation in the Data Age 2018’.

Eldohub made another breakthrough by having one of their staff members attend Africa’s Annual Gathering of all Innovation Hubs in Africa. Zipeta Nabwala who is our Software Developer and Training Innovation Manager at Eldohub represented us at the event in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania as the only person from Eldoret, Kenya. She met with hub managers from across Africa and appreciates Eldohub for being able to improve her proficiency a lot. She engaged and spoke with a lot of investors and young innovators involved with both technology and entrepreneurship. She also networked and made connections with potential partners and collaborators. Eldohub is finally demonstrating its empowerment to the youth by giving them a chance to nurture and grow their experiences as they discover their potential at a higher level. Eldohub will continue to explore more opportunities to share with the tech and entrepreneurial community with an aim to improve the skill and knowledge of the community at large.
