Impact Hub has expanded its footprint in Africa with the launch of Impact Hub Lagos.
Since the launch of the first Impact Hub in central London, in early 2005, it has grown to become a rapidly expanding, diverse, global network of collaborative spaces, vibrant entrepreneurial communities, and capacity building programs that inspire, connect and enable real impact globally. And Lagos, Nigeria is set to be part of this journey, as it becomes the second Impact Hub location in West Africa, coming after Impact Hub Accra and number 81 in the world.
An Impact Hub consists of three distinct elements. First, it is a vibrant community of passionate and entrepreneurial people who share an underlying intention to bring about positive change and act as peers to cross-fertilize and develop their ventures. Second, It is a source of inspiration that provides meaningful content through thought-provoking events, innovation labs, learning spaces, incubation, programs and facilitated conversations that support positive impact. Third, an Impact Hub is a physical space that offers a flexible and highly functional infrastructure to work, meet, learn and connect.
Leading the Impact Hub Lagos team is Bolaji Finnih. The hub, which would begin to operate fully in mid October, provides a multi dimensional combination of a prototyping lab, a start-up incubator, world class office space, a learning space and a think tank, to create a unique ecosystem for social innovation and global impact.
Entrepreneurs across Nigeria are invited to be part of the hub.
