The Innovation of Things (IOT) Initiative is an initiative by Hive Colab to assist developers who are in technology and innovation. Through this initiative we encourage the developers to look within their surroundings and develop solutions that would help their society as a whole.
We collaborate with IT departments of higher institutions of learning for example Makerere University and Mbarara University of Science and Technology. Hive Colab through the Innovation of Things(IOT) developed a challenge called Wazi Hub that happens annually for technology developers to show case their innovations and prototypes.
The Wazi Hub Programme is a programme intended to benefit developers in technology with solutions that are intended to solve challenges that are affecting the world currently. Hive Colab works with bright innovators that solve issues regarding health care, agriculture, logistics, energy etc. The programme runs on a rolling basis with encouragement to developers to keep adding value to their products. From this programme great innovations have come up like Pregcare for pregnant mothers. The programme supports 40 startups currently.
