Teams selected for Impact Hub Africa Seed Programme

4

Seven teams have been selected to take part in the Impact Hub Africa Seed Programme, a six-month incubator designed to support entrepreneurs in opening Impact Hubs across Africa.

Disrupt Africa reported earlier this month teams from nine cities across Africa were taking part in the final part of the application process to found a local Impact Hub and boost the local entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Teams from Accra in Ghana, Bamako in Mali, Kigali in Rwanda, Khartoum in Sudan, Kampala in Uganda, Lusaka in Zambia and Harare in Zimbabwe have now been selected to take part in the Africa Seed Programme, and will come together with experience Impact Hub experts for an induction meeting at the end of January in Kampala.

The first Impact Hub was launched in London in 2005, but since then the concept has become a global movement, with 54 hubs across the world with over 7,000 members.

“Impact Hubs are where change goes to work,” Impact Hub said. “Part innovation lab, part business incubator, and part community centre, we offer our members a unique ecosystem of resources, inspiration, and collaboration opportunities to grow impact. We believe a better world evolves through the combined accomplishments of creative, committed and compassionate individuals focused on a common purpose.”
