Our Impact

Our own version of change

Over 5 years ago we set out to leverage technology to effect social change. Below are a few milestones we have achieved.

Yaba Manifesto A framework for a solid startup cluster

On the 23rd of June, 2017, stakeholders of the Yaba technology ecosystem came together to discuss the current state of the ecosystem and share their ideas on actions required to build the ecosystem into a successful one.

At the town hall meeting, it was agreed that if we succeed in building a functional ecosystem in Yaba, it can serve as a template for building other technology clusters across the country and maybe someday, Africa. The seven pillars decided upon include: Culture, Infrastructure, Policy, Talent, Research & Development, Funding and Smart City.

CcHUB Pitch Drive From Africa to Europe

In partnership with Google for Entrepreneurs, CcHUB launched PitchDrive, a three-week five-city European tech hub tour across London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Zurich and Paris with the aim to raise โ‚ฌ20M in funding from investors.

i-HQ Project Enabling environment to thrive while collaborating

The i-HQ project is helping to build an ‘innovation city’ – a hotspot for creative ventures where all key stakeholders (academics, industry and government) find adequate infrastructure, resources and enabling environment to strive while collaborating. From a vision, a virtual tour was launched to communicate the vision and engage the larger tech community and key stakeholders.

In 2013, CcHUB constituted a consortium of core implementation partners which includes MainOne, Technovision and the Lagos State government.The i-HQ project is home to over 30 technology companies in Yaba.

re:learn Smart application of technology in education

Through CcHUBโ€™s Education Practice (re:learn), we have delivered world-class STEM education to thousands of students by providing support for the smart application of technology in schools across Nigeria. Our in-school and out-of-school programmes have served to provide students aged 5-18 year with skills and resources relevant to the 21st century.

Over the past 5 years, we have worked with Google, the MacArthur Foundation, Oracle, the Raspberry Pi Foundation, the Ministry of Education amongst others, to deliver quality education at scale.

95+ Ventures Early Stage Venture Support

Through our Incubation unit, we have supported over 95 early stage ventures providing solutions to social problems with technology. Some of these ventures have in turn created over 450 jobs.

โ‚ฆ1 Billion Growth Capital Fund

December 2015, CcHUB launched the CcHUB Growth Capital โ€“ Nigeriaโ€™s first social innovation fund to invest in next-generation infrastructure for change in Nigeria and beyond โ€“ with targeted fund size of over N1Billion over the next 24 months
