The Largest Community Of Innovation Enablers In Africa

Who we are

AfriLabs is a network organisation supporting Innovation Centers across African countries since 2011, founded upon the mission of building a community around the rapidly emerging technology hubs in Africa.  These hubs serve as centers that provide support to African entrepreneurs, innovators, developers, and youths. By providing physical co-working and dedicated office spaces, as well as inclusive training and business, legal and financial support, we play an active role in helping to raise successful entrepreneurs who will create jobs and develop innovative solutions to African problems.

AfriLabs Annual Gathering

The AfriLabs Annual Gathering is the largest convention of brilliant African innovation hub leaders and ecosystem builders on the continent. Over the years, it has served as an avenue where all actors in the innovation community ranging from hubs, startups, academia, investors, corporates and development agencies come together to understand various perspectives across several sectors. The 2021 edition was a special one as marked our 10th anniversary, celebrating a decade of enabling innovation in Africa from the 27th – 29th of October in Abuja, Nigeria.
