Welcoming Jessica Colaço: iHub Manager

12 Comments

I’m very excited to announce that someone who has a long history in the tech space in Nairobi is coming on board to help manage the iHub. Jessica Colaço is the new iHub manager as of this month. She’s in charge of operations and will be the main point of contact at the space.

Jessica has been a very active member of the Nairobi tech community over the years, putting on events and engaging both students and professionals at many levels in her role at Strathmore Research and Consultancy Centre. She’s also a TED Fellow and was named by ‘Business Daily’ as one of the top 40, under 40 years of age women in Kenya’s business scene.

“My goal is to put Kenya on the map as the hub for ICT in Africa.” – Jessica Colaço

Jessica is a coder, she’s a great Java programmer in her own right, but has since moved on to the research fields. Here at the iHub, besides the normal operational work, she’ll continue working on research and will communicate with universities about how they connect to the greater tech community in Nairobi.
