What we do

Kids Code Club

Schools that partner with us for this STEM programme have their children improve in logical thinking and problem-solving capabilities.

Women Meetup

Women who attend our meetups benefit from rich content offered by our rockstar speakers, mentorship in business and other professional fields.


Our members confess to the value they draw from our peer-to-peer mentorship. Girls have become successful women while women have started and scaled businesses.

Job Linkage

We trust the women we produce so we recommend them for challenging opportunities locally and internationally.

Makers' Club

An engaging 4-week STEM holiday programme designed to prepare kids and teens as entrepreneurs and problem solvers.

About Us

Starthub Women is a not-for-profit initiative of Start Innovation Hub Technology Foundation. It was founded by Youth Hanson Johnson in July 2018 at Start Innovation Hub as a community of young women using technology and entrepreneurship to champion the visibility of women in the society.

We envision a community where women are proportionally represented as technical leaders, executives, founders, VCs, board members and software engineers.

We do not only encourage women to start up faster in technology entrepreneurship, but also support the growth of women that are already in tech.

Our Vision

To empower women in technology and make them visible for leadership opportunities in society.

Our Mission

To create a network of women professionals in technology through continuous capacity building and business development programmes.


Starthub Women gave me a platform to teach kids at Eden Schools how to code. I have gone ahead to incorporate The Innovative Child Network for Skill-based Education as a platform to help me fulfil my dream of transforming learning to meet the needs of every child.

I was introduced to this amazing team by my twin sister. Today, I feel fulfilled also finding time to give back by visiting at least 1 school a week to get kids and teens started with technology.

What I like about Starthub Women is the professionalism and inclusiveness in their programmes. My interest in technology and entrepreneurship got the spark when I found other women doing amazing things in this community of women supporting women

We have seen great value from the feedback we get from our pupils. they are always looking forward to Wednesday for the coding and robotics club sessions. We will also continue to do our best in supporting this novel initiative.

I got inspired into tech by what I saw Edidiong Asikpo has grown up to become within a very short time. When I asked further, I learned she is part of this amazing community of women supporting women. When Facebook named her as an Icon of Change in Africa, I knew I too can make it as a Woman in Tech. I am today testifying of the awesomeness of Starthub Women as a world-class Frontend Developer.
