Addis Ababa is alive with innovation right now and that’s why we’re happy to be supporting a tech innovation hub there, xHub. The xHub will act as a place for IT entrepreneurs to convert their idea into a product or company, by providing mentorship, training, ICT access and testing facilities and networking opportunities. Rising numbers of IT graduates in the country are looking to establish themselves and their start-ups in Addis and xHub will help them achieve this. Indigo’s funding of £20,000 will go towards the hub’s core costs.
