CcHub launches Africa’s first design hub in Rwanda

by | Feb 14, 2019

Today, Nigeria’s technology centre and co-working space, Co-Creation Hub or CcHUB as its popularly called, launched a design lab in Kigali, Rwanda.

This move makes Rwanda the first place CcHUB has put down roots outside Nigeria.

The launch was streamed live on video via CcHUB’s official Facebook page.

According to a SautiTech report, the design lab will “become a leading creative space where its multidisciplinary team of product designers and engineers will collaborate with scientists and stakeholders globally, to explore the application of emerging technologies that will solve Africa’s systemic problems in Public Health, Education, Governance and the Private Sector.”

The report says the lab was launched by CcHUB’s Founder and CEO, Bosun Tijani alongside Rwanda’s Minister of ICT and Innovation, Paula Ingabire.

Paula said;

“We spent more trying to listen to what is needed – the innovation is not Tap and Go; the innovation is what the Tap and Go system can do for the context in which you are launching it. It is important to understand the challenges you are solving.”

According to Bosun;

“We’ve been building tech businesses alongside African entrepreneurs for almost a decade and in that time, we’ve identified a common challenge that businesses face when it comes to sustainable growth – Design and Innovation.”

Other guests at the event are; Kampeta Pitchette Sayinzoga who is Director General Rwanda’s National Industrial Research & Development Agency; Patrick Buchana Nsenga, CEO of AC Group Rwanda; and Jeanine Condo, Director General of Rwanda’s Biomedical Center.
