Startup Incubator

As an incubator, mHub provides all the necessary resources and a conducive environment for the startups to grow into profitable ventures. We also follow a ‘inside-out ‘ approach in which we encourage the innovators to build startups from within the hub, make partners/partnerships and collaborate to achieve specific realistic goals. mHub also facilitates negotiations with the industry, interested investors or possible funders..

Tech Community

mHub is a vibrant community of IT enthusiasts who have the passion and motivation to provide technology solutions to the challenges we face as a country. Young and upcoming innovators interact with industry captains to develop applications relevant to the industry requirements. We have a dedicated team of mentors full of ideas, skills and the drive to inspire, motivate and train the innovators.

Consulting

mHub Consulting aims to meet the technology needs of organisations by tapping into the immense talent pool that mHub’s diverse community of freelancers — namely project managers, developers, designers and quality assurers — provides. We realised early on that it was not enough for the mHub to bring these people together in one co-working space. They simply wouldn’t develop as much as we knew they could. It became increasingly important to leverage their brilliant skill-sets.
