Impact Hub Accra is at the heart of the social entrepreneurship and innovation in Ghana, leading inclusive growth of startups through various incubator and accelerator programs to scale sustainably. Over the last five years, IHA’s work has evolved into building the Osu Ako Adjei area as the city’s innovation district and the nerve center for Accra’s entrepreneurs and bold thinkers. IHA is at the nexus of Talent, tech and capital for social impact.
Working with a grassroots movement committed to “DIY Urbanism”, Impact Hub Accra is transforming spaces all across Osu Ako Adjei into activated living and work spaces where different local and global ecosystem players converge to engage Ghana’s vibrant young entrepreneurs. The use of digital technologies is a significant component in IHA’s service delivery to the immediate community and beyond. This is why they rely on partners like Ecoband Ghana to connect them to the fastest and most reliable internet connectivity from Google Fiber; a major infrastructure enabler for enhanced productivity across teams. The base of IHA’s core service is the provision of a collaborative workspace, private workspace, meeting rooms, makerspace, and a cafe where community members network, exchange skills, coaching and mentorship opportunities, pitch competitions, hackathons, product testing and the opportunity to design and prototype rapidly.
As a major ecosystem player, IHA works with a broad community of people tackling some of the biggest social challenges of our time. We see the digital ecosystem in Ghana and large parts of Africa making giant leaps in growth. There’s also a rapidly growing community of artists, content creators and social innovators pushing boundaries and shaping new African narratives. Impact Hub Accra is partnering re:publica to unify these communities and create a new pan-African platform for asking the toughest questions about our collective digital future and celebrating the progress we all have made.
