41. How I Helped Build Zambia’s First Innovation Hub – Lukonga Lindunda, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Bongo Hive

For today’s episode, I had the pleasure of interview Lukonga Lindunda, co-founder and Executive Director of Bongo Hive, an award-winning innovation hub in my hometown Lusaka, Zambia. 

Bongo Hive is changing the landscape of innovation in the region and it was so wonderful getting to know Lukonga better, learning more about the tech/innovation economy in Zambia and what Zambia is doing right in regard to supporting entrepreneurship. 

During our conversation, we discussed: 

  • What’s sparked his interest in tech
  • Navigating Zambia’s tech ecosystem in the early 2000s
  • How he co-founded Bongo Hive, Zambia’s first innovation hub
  • What does Zambia do really well regarding entrepreneurship support
  • What role the diaspora play in supporting entrepreneurs in Zambia
  • What excites him about Africa’s future

“We are unlocking opportunities and we’re doing more not just for Africa, but for the world.” Lukonga Lindunda
