Introducing iHub Consulting

5 Comments

Early this year, the Board of Advisors had a discussion on improving freelancer skills where  the decision was made to start up iHub Consulting, an initiative to help build soft skills such as communication, delivery and quality in the community. Through this initiative iHub will connect the community to larger client projects which freelancers may not have access to on their own.


So how will it work?

We’ll get the best developers, creatives, quality assurance people and project managers together in a pool. For each project, we’ll get them into teams where they will be reviewed by clients and peers. Results of the review will be reflected on their member profiles and anyone who falls below expectations will be let go from the pool. Another benefit of being in the pool is that the team will get specific mentoring and business skills training.

If you’d like to be considered for the shortlist, the application is open now at consulting.ihub.co.ke. You’ll need to provide your portfolio, client and community referees.

    This was way overdue. From my 6 month experience at the iHub and its environs, I got the feeling that it was more of a contractors’ joint, where guys had some experimental startups on the side, rather than the startup incubator its made out to be.

    @Mr. Majani: iHub is a pre-incubator space. Its aim is to place people together and create an environment where they can experiment and meet people who will get their ideas going before they can grow into full-blown startups.
