Why Hacker X?

Africa's tech scene is brimming with potential, but talented builders often lack the resources and support to translate their ideas into reality, and also scale globally.

Enter HackerX, a launchpad run by builders just like you, committed to the advancement of emerging technologies in Africa, and with years of hands-on operational experience in African and global startups.

We provide a supportive ecosystem for hackers that cuts across: technical and business-related educational resources, funding opportunities through grants and hackathons, and a vibrant mentor network consisting of top engineers, PMs, designers across Africa.
