The Global Innovation Gathering is taking place for the second time at re:publica 2014. In cooperation with BMZ and GIZ we are bringing the whole AfriLabs network to Berlin – over thirty hub representatives from across Africa. In addition, hub representatives from Asia and Latin America will be joining us to form the Global Innovation Gathering 2014. This year, we are also partnering with the AfricaHacktrip, the Founderbus, AfriMakers and iceBauhaus – each of these initiatives is bringing in two of their partners so that we will be welcoming start-ups and makers along with the hub managers at re:publica.
Global Innovation Gathering is also expanding - this year we will have three spaces at re:publica: A MakerSpace where different maker workshops will take place, located in the central hall at re:publica, a lounge, which will be located outside in the courtyard and on the last day of re:publica a whole stage which will be filled with examples of innovation, entrepreneurship and digital expression from around the world. Programme details will be released shortly.
So, if you are interested in meeting makers, entrepreneurs and tech community managers from Africa, Asia and Latin America, be sure to visit one of our Global Innovation Spaces at re:publica 2014!
