Welcome to LAB Africa!

LAB Africa is supporting local social entrepreneurs across sub-Saharan Africa in their efforts to find sustainable solutions to  some of the continent’s most pressing social challenges.

We are doing this by fostering the creation of an international network of social enterprise LABs across the continent.

Each LAB offers new and established social entrepreneurs a dynamic place to  meet and work, a range of support and training, and a platform from which to advocate for the creation/development of the social enterprise sector in that particular country.

In June 2012 LAB Africa launched a nine-month pilot Incubator programme for start-up and early-stage social enterprises in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

In 2013 we will be establishing the first full LAB, again in Dar es Salaam.

From 2014 we will be supporting the creation of new LABs in other countries across sub-Saharan Africa.
