AfriLabs has designed a 3-year capacity building programme targeting our AfriLabs Community and other hubs across Africa. The French Development Agency will finance the programme for the next 3 years.
Over the years, AfriLabs has carried out research on hub needs, capacity gaps and best practices. Based on these research, AfriLabs has designed and runs a series of initiatives targeting hubs. These initiatives will now be expanded and updated with support from the French Development Agency AFD. The new expanded program will include a new certification course in partnership with a major African academic institution, useful toolkits, a hub residential program, hub capacity building grants etc.
We aim to achieve the following. .
AfriLabs is the largest pan-African network of technology and innovation hubs in Africa with 174 members in 45 African countries.
AfriLabs was founded in 2011 to build a community around rapidly emerging tech hubs―innovation spaces that serve as meeting points and communities for developers, entrepreneurs, and investors.
