Dr Ndemo joins the iHub Board of Advisors
We are very excited to announce that Dr Bitange Ndemo has joined the iHub Board of Advisors from this year. He has for a long time been a friend of the iHub, and has been very supportive to the tech community, having been part of numerous barcamps and other events, interacting freely with startups and young entrepreneurs. He brings to the iHub community lots of experience from his time working in Government as a technocrat, unbridled passion and energy as a knowledge-based economy evangelist, and will continue to be very instrumental in shaping Kenya’s tech future with us.
Daktari Ndemo, former Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Information and Communication has been called the ‘Father of broadband’ in Kenya. He is currently steering a campaign to lower the cost of accessing ICT (Connectivity, Hardware and Software) in Kenya and the region. He is at the forefront of developing the demand side of ICT by actively promoting Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) in urban centres to showcase ICT entrepreneurial opportunities through digital villages in rural Kenya. He is also the Honorary Chair of the recently launched Alliance for Affordable Internet, Advisor to the Better than Cash Alliance and Strategic Panelist at ICANN. He is also a Senior Lecturer of Entrepreneurship and Research Methods at the University of Nairobi. His interests include Technology, Culture, Education and the Economy.
