Over 5 years ago, we launched the CcHUB with huge aspiration to create a unique space for creatives, technologists and other exciting people to build the future we all seek for Nigeria. We have collectively demonstrated what progressive Nigerians can do with the right support – CcHUB today is one of the highly referenced tech hubs across the world.
It is always tempting to judge the impact of the community we’ve all created through the stories of start-ups like BudgIT, Wecyclers, Traclist, Truppr, Asa, Stutern and many more, the biggest value, however, lies in the serendipitous and undocumented outcomes. Little is known about how the many hackathons we all engaged in led to the stronger ecosystem we have in Lagos today. It is probably difficult to gauge how much value the community was to the start of ventures like TechCabal, Delivery Science, Andela, Prepclass, Chop Up, Top Up Genie amongst others.
The team and I believe in providing a simple platform that inspires and supports experimentation. This attitude is what we believe led to the Tech Cluster in Yaba as it is known today and also accounts for the many contributions of the entire community to application of technology for social good in Nigeria (e.g GoVote.ng and LagosInnovation.com, BudgetCut App). We are proud of the young, naïve and purposeful spirit of the community. May we all continue to yearn for more!
With this email, I’d like to inform you that the membership structure of our co-working space on the 6th floor would be changing. In fact, access will now be FREE with a few paid/fixed desks. We’ll announce the details of how you can secure the exclusive FREE access next week and the new structure will take effect from Monday, 13th of June, 2016.
I thank you for your support and contribution to the CcHUB community and do hope you’ll secure your membership immediately the details are released.
