Pursuing the progress and momentum of the #SomaliaRising hashtag on Twitter, we came up with iRise Hub, a physical co-working platform which its main mission is to stimulate and advance the tech talent in Somalia and drive entrepreneurship to create jobs and come up with sustainable businesses to reduce the donor dependency syndrome.
