“We are beyond ecstatic about AfriLabs expanding its network. We look forward to carrying out more projects with our partners and members across Africa to support these hubs and the startups, entrepreneurs and innovators in their communities achieve even greater impact,” said Anna Ekeledo, executive director of AfriLabs.
“We look forward to a borderless and advanced Africa and members of our network collaborating to make this dream a reality.”
