Ordered alphabetically by last name, this essay spotlights some of the people who made iHub Research. Many more were part of the team but could not be included in this iteration of the essay due to time constraints.
Many started with iHub as interns and grew into management positions. The team was united in an inclination towards experimentation and this is demonstrated by the number of iHub Research alumni who pursued entrepreneurship (e.g. H. Moraa, J. Colaço, L. Mutuku, P. Ochola). Some are interested in making changes at the policy level (e.g. N. Sambuli, R. Omenya) and others within academia (e.g. W. Ndaiga, A. Okune). Several have gone to work with NGOs (e.g. V. Sika), and others into private sector (e.g. C. Orwa, A. Otieno, S. Ochieng). Several continue to work with iHub doing interesting work at the intersection of tech and governance and education (e.g. A. Salim, N. Ongoma, T. Wandia).
