Why we are different

We are a group of African professionals and youths who have come together behind a mission to enable African youth like us to create tech companies and get tech jobs.

We are proud of the Incubator program which will create hundreds of African Tech companies in the coming years!

Mission

AfricaHacks exists so that African youth can build African tech companies or get good tech jobs.

Started as NaijaHacks, the brainchild of Uchi Uchibeke, a Nigerian-Canadian Engineer with both SecureKey and Auth0, AfricaHacks makes opportunities available to African youth to start tech companies or get good tech jobs. Uchi started Naijahacks because of the impact that participating and winning Hackathons at Stanford, Princeton, Harvard, Waterloo, and many more had on him and his career. He wanted to bring a similar experience to young people in Nigeria to enable them to build solutions that make themselves, their families, and the world better. 

Today, AfricaHacks organizes and support Hackathons across all African countries and partners with African tech companies and others around the world to incubate new African tech companies.
