A secure business location in the middle of the emerging African market
The genesis of the Botswana Innovation Hub (BIH) is the Botswana Excellence Strategy which proposed a three pronged National Strategic Goal for the diversification of the country’s economy, creation of jobs and driving the country towards a knowledge based economy. BIH which is also aligned to the National Vision 2016 pillar of productivity is incorporated as a company duly registered under laws of Botswana to develop and operate a science and technology park on a dedicated site in Gaborone. The company is mandated to support new ventures and existing companies as well as attract companies, universities, research institutions and advanced training institutes to establish in the BIH. This development is intended to transform Botswana into a technology-driven and knowledge based economy by promoting a culture of innovation and competitiveness of its associated companies and knowledge–based institutions.
