The Addis Ababa Hub was founded in 2012 at the occurrence of the World Economic Forum on Africa taking place in Addis Ababa. Since then the Hub has seen various changes in leadership and member profiles, and presently boasts more than 20 members from various organizations, industries and sectors. 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.
