Addis Ababa Hub
The Addis Ababa Hub was founded concurrent to the World Economic Forum on Africa, held in Addis Ababa in May 2012. Presently, it is composed of 26 young and vibrant Shapers engaged in various organisations and industries in both the public and private sectors. Members come from various backgrounds including marketing, communications, advisory, finance, technology, urban planning, management, graphic design and many more. The Hub is proud to have a diverse portfolio of members, who are leaders in their respective fields to have come together, to implement community projects and engagements focused on community dialogue, entrepreneurship, employment, and the environment. These include our Warka Speaker Series, Shape Your Career and Shape Your Business Workshops, Shape Your Knowledge (a digital infographic series), Artists for Charity Hospital Painting Project, Shaping Davos High Level Panel on Public Private Partnership (Feb 2015), Addis Art Walk and more.
We pride ourselves in the diversity and unity within our Hub’s membership and inclusivity of the projects we organize. We are also proud to demographically represent Ethiopia’s young, talented and innovative population-at-large as the only hub in the country.
