Businesses integrating Ehubber in Owerri can deploy the Kermlin systems via Ehubber Nigeria.

Ehubber, Africa’s leading productivity technology company, has today announced a new future of work partnership with Heartland Incubation Hub, Owerri’s largest coworking provider. This partnership will allow Heartland Incubation Hub to integrate Ehubber in Owerri and to receive payments via Ehubber pay.

Heartland Incubation Hub is established to solve the problem of an inadequate support structure, mentorship system for incubating, or developing business ideas by young people in south-east Nigeria. Incubation at Heartland Incubation Hub helps early-stage entrepreneurs through product development, growth hacking, and building a sustainable business model. Heartland Incubation Hub provides seed capital, office space, high internet access, meeting room, and other facilities. This new partnership will enable Ehubber to offer Ehubber as a coworking booking method to its business customers.

In recent years, Africa has witnessed an explosion in mobile penetration as smartphone adoption has risen rapidly. According to the GSMA, this year Africa will hit the half a billion mark of unique mobile subscribers, and the continent will reach 50% subscriber penetration by 2025. Sub-Saharan Africa alone is responsible for more than 45% of the world’s mobile money accounts with the number of account holders exceeding half a billion by 2020, as shared on Statista.

Through this partnership, Heartland Incubation Hub and Ehubber will positively contribute to this trend by increasing productivity usage and penetration in Owerri to improve local economies and livelihoods as well as create opportunities for individuals and businesses across the state.

Commenting on the partnership, Uchechukwu “Apex Zy” Ajuzieogu, Founder and CEO of Ehubber, said: “Owerri has one of the highest growth rates for the future of work and productivity in the South East. It makes sense that we help provide a seamless productivity method and system ensuring local businesses and users reap the full benefits of the remote work boom in the region. Our goal has always been to grow a new wave of productivity enhancements in Africa, and by creating more avenues for businesses in Africa to adopt productivity technology we can say the future is here. With this partnership, we can achieve this while simplifying productivity for our customers.”

Commenting on the collaboration, Godwin Eze, Heartland Incubation Hub Manager said: “As we progress on our journey to becoming the largest EdTech platform in Nigeria, we will empower millions of businesses to embrace digital products in our markets to accept digital payments from our customers. We believe this is an enabler to accelerating digitized payments and the future of work in Africa. Building strong ecosystems through partnerships is central to our platform strategy and we will continue to invest in expanding the reach of our platform to consumers and businesses in Africa.”

The new partnership will further expand on Ehubber’s previous collaboration with Oluaka Institute of Technology, beyond Owerri and South-Eastern Nigeria – with the potential of deepening adoption of digital future of work and productivity in Owerri, a sector expected to reach $19 billion by 2022, according to Statista.
