Our crush is Bosun Tijani, founder of Co-Creation Hub, Africa’s Largest Business Network. He is one of the most influential figures in African tech. Co-Creation Hub is a pan-African innovation enabler which works at the forefront of accelerating the application of innovation and social capital for a better society.
He worked as a Business Development Manager at DeliveryKing and also worked as Deployment Lead Africa with Hewlett Packard Global Micro-enterprises Acceleration Programme (GMEAP).
In 2010, he decided to pursue a path towards becoming an entrepreneur. Then he co-founded Co-creation HUB (CcHUB) with Femi Longe, which became Nigeria’s first open living lab and pre-incubation space designed to be a multi-functional and multi purpose space where work to catalyze creative social tech ventures takes place.
Co-creation HUB is essentially a place for technologists, social entrepreneurs, government, tech companies, impact investors and hackers in and around Lagos to co-create new solutions to the many social problems in Nigeria.
Bosun Tijani created a platform to support ordinary young Nigerians with ideas who believe that they can create a solution to a problem.
The CcHub/iHub is using its size to leverage more partnerships. Tijani and the team are gaining collaborations with big African and global tech names, such as MainOne and Facebook.
