StartHub Africa's Vision

Fulfill the potential of entrepreneurs to create innovative and scalable businesses that improve lives.

The Mission of StartHub Africa

To build entrepeneurship ecosystems by identifing, training, coaching & providing a platform for growth and networking.

It started in 2017…

... when the problem statement was put on the table by a university lecturer in Uganda: "There is no practical guidance for students who want to start businesses. They mainly study theory but lack the skills to start off something". And a German-Ugandan team quickly decided to build a solution. We wanted to provide an answer to those asking: "How do I start" and "What are next steps"?
In August 2017, StartHub Africa launched with 4 universities in and around Kampala. The rest is history...
