  KIVUHUB TEAM: THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO CAN BE THE NEXT SILICON VALLEY!  Building and running a tech start-up in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is not for the faint-hearted, let alone turning one’s small venture into a mature, profitable enterprise.

One more dropped internet call, is just another day in life of tech startups in DRC For Eliud Aganze who runs a business support hub in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) city of Kivu, getting cut off on an online meeting or call is an all too common experience. “Internet connections are slow, expensive and unreliable,” says Aganze, the founder and CEO of Kivu Hub. He also cites erratic electricity supply as well as expensive ICT equipment as major handicaps slowing down the acceleration of startups in the DRC. “Since the fibre optic network is not yet covering a large part of the country, we are still reliant on the satellite network,” he adds.

How KivuHub is trying to build a tech ecosystem in eastern DRC The city of Bukavu in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), with a population of around 800,000, has been overrun by conflict for the last 25 years. In the aftermath of the Rwandan Genocide, Hutu refugees and much of the former Rwandan government fled into refugee camps around the city, with war ensuing in 1996 as Rwandan troops entered DRC to overthrow the Kinshasa government. Bukavu has been at the heart of events ever since. As relative calm returns to the region, however, there are hopes that tech can play a part in the area’s emergence from post-war conflict. Founded earlier this year, incubator and accelerator KivuHub plans to be at the heart of this. Founder and…
