iRise Innovation Hub is the first co-working space in Mogadishu. It was founded by a team of likeminded individuals on the premise of transforming Somalia into a silicon horn. Headquartered in Mogadishu, iRise is space for Somali innovators, techies, and aspiring entrepreneurs.
A home to learn, share ideas, explore business and investment
opportunities, and shape the countries’ economic ecosystem.
iRise is the first innovation and technology hub that is launched in Mogadishu with the aim of unlocking the potential of Somalia’s talents and accelerating changes and economic development. Since its inception in 2017, iRise has become a thriving community, a launching pad for new ideas, a place for civic and social entrepreneurs – and a home for digital doers. In fact, our founders envisioned space and enabling environment where techies, innovators, digital-doers, and investors can connect and co-create a sustainable ecosystem for Somalia and beyond. Our founding vision was to help social entrepreneurs to hack innovative solutions to Somali’s challenges.
