Join Start-Ups, Investors, Incubators, Entrepreneurs & Operators at the Ericsson AHUB

Calling all tech start-ups, incubators, entrepreneurs, investors, operators and developers... AfricaCom 2015 brings you its latest invitation only, grassroots, community driven feature, the Ericsson AHUB, the destination for Africa's leading tech entrepreneur, developer, venture capital, operator and vendor communities.


In partnership with Africa's leading incubators, accelerators, and innovation hubs, the Ericsson AHUB will showcase talent, facilitate partnerships and encourage investment and innovation, in a sector which has an abundance of ICT tech skills, but little industry support.
