If you are a parent now, can you pause for a moment and think of your childhood? What is your fondest memory? If you were in the urban setting, maybe watching cartoons on Television? If you grew up in the countryside, probably you remember trying to finish house chores to get some time to do your homework, maybe using a paraffin lamp as electricity was a luxury beyond your imagination.

In the growth process of every organization, looking back and evaluating progress is a critical step. The dynamics in the business world cannot allow a business to carry on with its journey the way it started. Competition, new technologies, dynamic market, partners and  changing investor preferences will always push an organisation to redesign the approach to reach the desired end. (more…)
The digital economy is taking shape and undermining conventional notions about how businesses are structured; how firms interact; and how consumers obtain services, information, and goods. This is reflected in all sectors around the globe. Kenya has not been left behind. With every passing year, new technologies and services are emerging and digital technologies are becoming the cornerstones of our daily activities. The central and local governments, businesses, and individuals must therefore adapt to this new reality. In Kenya, the ministry of ICT, through the Konza Technopolis Development Authority (KOTDA), a key flagship project of Kenya’s Vision 2030 economic development portfolio, is playing a critical role in making the digital economy a reality. The KoTDA CEO Eng. John Tanui, during a visit to Eldoret Golf Club, where he attended the 3rd #KonzaInvestsTeeingGolfSeries aimed at engaging both prospective local and foreign investors to accelerate the development of the smart city, paid a courtesy call to Eldohub on 13th December 2021. In his remarks, he emphasized the quadruple Helix Model of innovation that recognizes four major actors in the innovation system: science, policy, industry, and society. He highlighted the efforts of Konza Technopolis with partners at the regional levels to achieve greater impacts. We are looking forward to partnering with Konza Technopolis to support the future workforce and young innovators. Speaking during the visit is our Director Chepkemoi Magdaline who is also the current Chair of the Association of Countrywide Innovation Hubs, a network of all innovation hubs in Kenya. “To foster innovation in Africa we need collaboration between technology start-ups and large corporates”  
The AfriLabs a network of all innovation hubs in Africa hosts Annual Gathering which provides a unique opportunity for tech hubs in the AfriLabs network and other stakeholders in the African tech ecosystem like local innovators (entrepreneurs), corporates, investors, academia and developmental agencies to convene, network and share knowledge. The 3rd edition of the AfriLabs Annual Gathering 2018 was held on 11th – 13th October 2018 at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The theme was ‘Innovation in the Data Age 2018’.   Eldohub made another breakthrough by having one of their staff members attend Africa’s Annual Gathering of all Innovation Hubs in Africa. Zipeta Nabwala who is our Software Developer and Training Innovation Manager at Eldohub represented us at the event in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania as the only person from Eldoret, Kenya. She met with hub managers from across Africa and appreciates Eldohub for being able to improve her proficiency a lot. She engaged and spoke with a lot of investors and young innovators involved with both technology and entrepreneurship. She also networked and made connections with potential partners and collaborators. Eldohub is finally demonstrating its empowerment to the youth by giving them a chance to nurture and grow their experiences as they discover their potential at a higher level. Eldohub will continue to explore more opportunities to share with the tech and entrepreneurial community with an aim to improve the skill and knowledge.
