Innovation House is a deep tech impact sourcing provider, venture builder, incubator, as well as a community nexus for 21st century skill-building and problem-solving on the African continent.
Located in Senegal, in beautiful Dakar, the House embodies the Taranga, creativity and immense potential one is sure to find in the city. Together, with a global network of tech experts (in areas such as blockchain, robotics, artificial intelligence and more), mentors, and organizational partners, we are one of the newest innovation hubs in Africa working to cultivate, compensate and empower STEM innovation.
And to think, this time last year, founder Moussa Traore planned for this house to serve as his personal residence. But, recognizing the need for a true innovation + impact space in Senegal, he swiftly decided to transform it into an Innovation House.
And this decision is inspiring people around the world to get involved.
