The Fellowship supports entrepreneurs on their journey to success. It will bolster their journey through access to iHub events and resources as well as customised training and mentorship that develop their business acumen and entrepreneurial and technical skills. It will include a curriculum of general and sector specific modules for startups and entrepreneurs at different stages of their journey. The fellowship programme leverages iHub’s extensive experience over the last 7 years in support of entrepreneurs.


An iHUB Fellow will:

  • Have access to the iHub co-working space (desk space, pocket friendly meals, meeting rooms for those formal discussions and lounges for laid back conversations, and other green membership benefits)
  • Participate in a 6-12 month tailor-made programme that will develop their business acumen and entrepreneurial and technical skills
  • Have access to business support services that range from legal services, human resources and many others
  • Become more embedded in the East African entrepreneurs community, amplify the impact of their businesses, and ensure the value from their products/solutions and services reach those who would benefit the most
