The Hub East Africa is a knowledge centre that exists to inspire and cultivate professional entrepreneurship among startups and SMEs from diverse sectors in the East African economy. As an organization that is actively involved in a day to day engagement with entrepreneurs, it is our core business to support businesses to start, grow and scale into sustainable enterprises.

In addition we provide the full eco-system consisting of desk/office space and financing solutions through the different partnerships we have established.
We regard entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship in high esteem as a driver of change, development and progress. Entrepreneurs build businesses that create value, employment opportunities and deliver crucial services and products where it is needed most. We believe in entrepreneurs being the silent motor of our economy. In an economy that has the ambition to take up opportunities, it is our mission to support entrepreneurs to take full advantage and own up to their potential.
