UK-based All Amber has announced partnerships with two organisations – iHub and m:lab East Africa – for its upcoming Mobile Web East Africa 2012, set for February 22 to 23 in Nairbi.
As part of the partneship, Nairobi’s Innovation Hub (*iHub) and m:lab East Africa have both agreed to formally support the conference,whose key focus is to facilitate the growth of the mobile ecosystem in the region through interaction and relationship building.
iHub is an open space for technologists, investors, tech companies and hackers, and the space is a tech community facility with a focus on young entrepreneurs, web and mobile phone programmers, designers and researchers while m:lab East Africa is a consortium of four organizations which aims to be a leader in identifying, nurturing and helping to build sustainable enterprises in the knowledge economy.
“Mobile Web East Africa is bound to bring together key stakeholders contributing to the growth of the mobile web and related economic platforms in the region. It is complementary to the work we are doing at m:lab East Africa to help nurture mobile entrepreneurship so it was an easy decision to formally support the conference,” said John Kieti, m:lab East Africa manager.
Matthew Dawes, All Amber managing director noted that “the confirmation of support from these two organisations can be seen as a major piece in this year’s Mobile Web East Africa 2012 jigsaw.”
Mobile Web East Africa will be held at Southern Sun Mayfair hotel and due to the interactive roundtable seating format, attendance is limited to 140 people. Registrations can be made here.
