Bosun Tijani is one of the most influential figures in African tech. He is the co-founder, and CEO of Co-Creation Hub , a pan-African innovation enabler, 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 . 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 take 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.
“We wanted a platform to support ordinary young Nigerians with ideas who believe that they can create a solution to a problem,” Tijani said.
In 2019, Tijani started running the largest tech network in Africa following CcHUB’s acquisition of iHub. This made him the CEO of both organizations, including their startup incubation programs and VC activities from Nigeria to Kenya.
“The CcHub/iHub will also use its size to leverage more partnerships. Tijani and the team are already gaining collaborations with big African and global tech names, such as MainOne and Facebook”.
