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.
Our 2020 Impact
To view the scale of our impact during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, check out a concise report of our activities and of our community.
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. Join us this year from the 27th – 29th of October in Abuja, Nigeria as we celebrate a decade of enabling innovation in Africa.
AfriLabs Capacity Building Programme
The AfriLabs Capacity Building Programme (ACBP) is a 36 months intensive capacity building for hubs across Africa. This programme is funded by the Digital Africa Seed Fund through the French Development Agency’s support.
