AlphaHUB, an innovation center, dedicated to pushing for research and development in hardware and embedded system technology, has been established in Kaduna State Nigeria to provide training, support and co-working space for budding entrepreneurs interested in the hardware development in Nigeria and Africa at large.
The Founder of AlphaHUB, Victor Jibro, explained the need for Tech hub with the focus in Hardware Technology to be established in Nigeria to meet the growing demand for smart devices.
He said AlphaHUB is dedicated to solving Africa’s greatest challenges with regards embedded systems, as a lot of devices in our homes and institutions run on them. Example of such devices are but not limited to, inverters, stabilizers, alarm systems, car security, RFID door locks used by hotels and secured facilities. Most times we import these devices at huge cost and when they develop faults, we end up discarding them or pay heavily to fix them. Through our hands-on approach, we seek to bridge the skill gaps in quality tech talents in Nigeria, by equipping human capacity with an innovative problem-solving approach to handle hardware challenges.
Victor Jibro also stated that “AlphaHUB is all about convenience and work efficiency, as we offer office for teams or a desk space for individuals. Our community is just the right place for entrepreneurs that desire to be successful. For members that signup at the Hub, they stand benefits privileges, which includes: 12hours daily access, free Wifi, free coffee, meal discounts in hub cafe, front desk service, office address and access to mentorship and development.
