Co-creation Hub, located on the 6th floor of 294 Herbert Macaulay Way, Yaba, Lagos, is a tech startup incubation service which will provide advice, training, mentorship and access to funds for about 50-60 Nigerian tech startups.

The Co-Creation hub will also be a great meeting point for technology stakeholders, programmers, social media gurus and the like to collaborate through meet-ups, hackhathons and competitions. Co-Creation Hub launches in August 2011.
