A UNIQUE WAY OF CREATING

How do you save a people caught in the Stockholm syndrome? How do you break apathy and cynicism of a people? These are hard questions that must be solved before we can enlist Africans in their own democracy. These are problems we must enlist the brightest Africans to solve.

The only way we know how to address these challenges is co-creation. The only job we do at the lab, is define the problems and attract the brightest minds to solve it. We know many ideas will die, many projects will die, many products will fail however, the ones that blossom will deepen democratic participation.

OUR PROCESS

HOW WE DO WHAT WE DO

There are two ways projects come into our pipeline. Research: One is through our internal research process through which we find solutions to problems we have identified. Eureka!:  Our members or partners come running at us with a brilliant idea they’ve got. Hacks: We spend the weekend over-caffinated, sleep deprived hitting hard at the problem till it yields.

IDEA

Always starts with a bright spark

DEFENSE

We put the idea to test or reject it

PROTOTYPE

We build our MVP and get some real feedback

PRODUCTION

OWNERSHIP

MOUs and contracts are drawn
