our communities

We transform recycled shipping containers into state of the art, solar powered Innovation Hubs to run our free technology Bootcamps directly in the communities we serve.

investing in community

We believe strongly in working at the community level to make longterm, grassroots and sustainable change.

Our goal is not to extract talent, but to create environments where everyone can thrive.

environment matters

Our goal is to create awe-inspiring learning environments where our students and young adults are encouraged to wonder, create & thrive.

You shouldn’t have to go to Silicon Valley to get a world class technology experience, you should be able to just walk down the street.

our newest innovation hub

The Mbare Innovation Hub is our 7th Hub in Zimbabwe and our first multi-container structure!
