Empower your Hubs with the Hubiquitous TecHub Catalyst Program – Applications now open

The Hubiquitous Techub Catalyst Program aims to elevate at least 10 African Tech Hubs to a higher level in IoT and emerging technologies. Our program will focus on enhancing the hubs’ capabilities in IoT and fostering the development of sustainable value-added services. Through the Hub Catalyst Program, we will empower the hubs to drive technological innovation, skill development, and entrepreneurial growth within their local ecosystems.

We are committed to providing comprehensive IoT training to the hub personnel through our “Train the trainers” initiative, which includes both virtual and in-person training on cutting-edge technologies. The in-person training will be held in Tanzania for a duration of one week. Additionally, we will equip the hubs with our “Solution Box” package, which will enable them to establish or upgrade their in-house IoT labs. Leveraging their newly acquired competencies, the hubs will launch a concise IoT certification course within their communities.

This certification program, designed in advance, will include an exciting hackathon. Furthermore, each hub will be required to develop or enhance two “Minimum Viable Products” using IoT technologies. As a culmination of their achievements, we will invite all successful hubs to participate in the “Hubiquitous Innovation Week” in Europe. This event will provide a platform for the hubs to showcase their success stories and demonstrate their MVPs. Moreover, it will facilitate opportunities for partnerships with European counterparts in Brussels and Berlin.
