The number of tech hubs across Africa has more than doubled in less than a year


    The commitment of investors and innovators to grow the local startup ecosystem has seen the number of technology hubs across Africa doubling in less than a year.

    Global telecoms industry body GSMA’s Ecosystem Accelerator says a total of 314 tech hubs and incubation centers were recorded in July 2016.

    This represents an increase from the 117 centers that were recorded by the World Bank in 2015.

    Even though these are found across 93 cities in 42 countries in Africa, most of them are located in only 5 countries, namely: South Africa, Egypt, Kenya, Nigeria and Morocco.
