iHub By Rachel Gichinga / November 26, 2012
Applications for Green Memberships for 2013 Open Now!
The iHub is proud to announce the reopening of applications for green membership. This will be our third cohort, and we’re excited to go into 2013 with a brand new community of techies.
It’s been a very busy year for us at the iHub. This time last year we had a virtual community of about 5,400 members. We currently have about 9,700 members (and growing). iHub Research, which was set up last year, is setting the pace with some much-needed tech research on Africa; and we’ve added iHub Consulting, iHub UX Lab and iHub Cluster to the iHub family in a bid to not just give space to tech entrepreneurs, but to build an entire ecosystem in which techies can learn, thrive and grow. Even Pete’s Coffee has grown over the past year, opening up a new restaurant on the ground floor of Bishop Magua Centre!
We’re looking forward to going into 2013 in a big way – with a vibrant community from which great ideas, sustainable businesses and next generation leaders will come. Applications for our 250 green member slots open now, and we’re looking for the best with whom we can build a strong, vibrant community in 2013.
Entrepreneurs, freelancers, creatives, developers – if you’re working on a tech-related project and need co-working space and a good internet connection in order to be effective, apply now. We’re offering all of this as well as access to strong networks, training opportunities, connections to funding opportunities, an incredible community of peers and mentors, and the best coffee around.
NOTE: All the current green memberships have been purged back to white on the iHub website. This means that if you are currently a green member, you have to reapply. We will retain up to 25% of existing members, so if you’re reapplying you’ll need to state your case for why you should continue to use the space.
The application deadline is Sunday 9th December 2012 at 11:59pm. Upon successful application, the new membership will be valid from 1st January 2013.
Apply here (login required).
