*IHub_ presentation by Erik Hersman
Via Jonathan Marks
This is the third interview I ( Jonathan Marks) have done with Erik Hersman in a year. Each has been in a different continent and each time I find his enthusiasm for entrepreneurship to be even more inspiring. Erik is one of five founders of the iHub in Nairobi, Kenya. It is a city that is booming, yet until now, it has no focal point for those IT start-ups that need cheap, fast Internet access and a place to interact with colleagues with a similar passion. iHub is the answer and when I visited on April 6th 2010, I found them in the early stages of building out.
Erik and the iHub’s new manager Jessica Colaço are both TED fellows. They combine creativity with sound business sense – as well as being great people to know. In the film you will also will also see two 3rd year students, Samuel Olembo and Angela Oduor, who are helping out.
Check out ihub.co.ke, and if you’ve got a great idea, I definitely recommend hooking up.
