One of the main reasons I am in Kenya this summer is to get to know the incredible entrepreneurs working out of the iHub (and its sister mobile hacker space called the m:lab). The brainchild of Erik Hersman, the iHub was founded in 2010 to provide a laboratory for the future leaders of Africa’s knowledge economy. Located a floor below the iHub, the m:lab focuses on mobile app development. It offers both training and accelerator services to young Nairobians hoping to make a big splash in Africa’s dynamic mobile marketplace.
