iHub among the 50 Most Innovative Companies In the World 2014


iHub has been recognised as one of the 50 most innovative companies in the world by Fast Company!  This is really down to the absolutely awesome team at the iHub who have an unbridled energy and passion to make a difference in our corner of the world, as well as the community we serve, who have continued to interact, innovate and grow.

As we look towards marking 4 years of existence, some times it is hard to imagine that we really did not realise how fast we would grow and how much of an impact (both directly and indirectly) we could have in Kenya and beyond. From the 4th floor community space, quickly expanding to iHub Research, starting the m:lab with the rest of the consortium, launching the UX Lab and our consulting division and with GearBox on the horizon; it has been about identifying gaps that exist and seeing how we can resolve them.

Looking forward, over the next few years we intend to  further deepen our ties with the community we serve, allowing for further collaboration, interaction and innovations to happen as we continue to be a critical catalyst of the growth of innovations, world class talent and subsequently, successful enterprises.
