5 Hot Entrepreneurship Hubs In Zimbabwe You Need To Check Out

Entrepreneurship isn’t for everyone. Imagine a world where we all worked for ourselves, there’d be no employees. It would leave the universe unbalanced. That’s why some people are happy and fulfilled with working a 9-5 job while others are hungry to head out on their own. If you’re the individual who wants to start-up or already maneuvering your way around the entrepreneurship life, there are 5 hubs that you’ll benefit from.  

5. Impact Hub Harare

Social innovators and entrepreneurs taking collaborative action for a thriving Zimbabwe and a better world!

Impact Hub Harare is a membership-based organisation. What they offer?

  • An ecosystem of resources including co-working space, 
  • Programmes and events to inspire, enable and connect Zimbabwean start-ups to reach a global standard.

They’re currently taking part in a Green Innovation Fair today and the 6th of December 2019. The Green Innovation Fair is designed to allow entrepreneurs working towards curbing carbon emissions to showcase their products and stand a chance to win US$1,000 towards their projects. 

4. YouthConnektZim

3. The Techvillage Innovative Hub

A collaborative working space for entrepreneurs and startups. We inspire creativity through experiences and help founders go from idea to sustainable startup!

What do we love about TechVillage? They host regular meetups and discuss various topics that affect the Zimbabwean entrepreneur. Their talk held yesterday was on goal setting. We hope there’s a video or blog post for those who couldn’t make it.

2. StartupBiz Zimbabwe

StartupBiz Zimbabwe is a business research firm based in Zimbabwe. They are passionate about entrepreneurship. They want to help Zimbabweans start and grow their businesses successfully.

What do they do?

  • Sell prewritten business plans for various industries including agriculture, transport, manufacturing, retail and education. 
  • Publish articles on business ideas, business news, business tips, personal finance, entrepreneur interviews, and profiles.

The number one reason we like their hub is that they always have fresh and informative content on their website. 

1. Stanbic Bank Incubator Hub

The Stanbic Bank Incubator Hub is located in Harare corner Herbert Chitepo and Sixth Avenue. The hub is open to all entrepreneurs operating in different sectors of industries. The hub is open on Monday – Friday 0800 -1800 and Saturday 0800- noon.  

Why is the hub talk of town?

Entrepreneurs are welcome to enjoy a relaxing creative space. You’re welcome to hold meetings with your clients. With the current electricity problems in the country, it’s great to know that Stanbic made an arrangement for this. You can charge your phone, laptop and enjoy free limited WiFi.  They have a confectionery area with an assortment of coffees and freshly baked goods at affordable prices.

We hope these hubs will help you through your entrepreneur journey.

Have a fantastic Thursday!
