CCHub Nigeria

Monday, November 28th, 2011

And so I was busy working on a web-dev project when I received a phone call from a friend asking if I had heard of CCHub [Co-Creation Hub], interesting conversation as it were because some way some how I’m usually privileged to hear of such initiatives before they launch out considering the beautiful idea behind it.

Anyway, a few minutes later I was already bubbling with excitement as I strolled down to their “Hub” location which wasn’t to far off. And why was i excited you ask? because there’s no initiative in Nigeria today [to the best of my knowledge] that offers such a platform for interaction to promote social development & change using technology as it’s foundation!

CcHUB is Nigeria’s first open living lab and pre-incubation space being designed to be a multi-functional, multi-purpose space where work to catalyze creative social tech ventures take place. The HUB will be a place for technologists, social entrepreneurs, government, tech companies, impact investors and enthusiasts in and around Lagos to co-create new solutions to the many social problems in Nigeria.

The CCHub aims at accelerating growth for tech start-up’s which have products or ideas that act as a catalyst for social change in Nigeria. They will be the cushing that will support these start-up’s through an array of business support resources and services.

Hello! my name is Chuka Ofili,

I work with technology on various levels everyday.

So, at some point in the distant past i decided that i’ll start articulating my thoughts & experiences somewhere on the web.. and you guessed right, i never got round to it ’till now!

Moving forward, let’s hope procrastination stays inept in the progress of this blog.

Cheers!
