(An EcnomistAfrica report for World Record Book of Jobs Creation)

Youth entrepreneurs and their investors who openly partner Kenya's IHUB  1 2 stand out in terms of exponential impact analysis conducted for the Good Hubs Guide since 2006. After the top down failures and tragedies (eg 7/7) of London's 2005 Year of Make Poverty History and its Commission for Africa, pro-youth economists started  tracking hub movements. London had contributed an early manifestation of hubsworld with what was first named Islington's the-hub.net.

Kenya's Ihub emerged 2008 at the same time as Ushahidi rapidly became Kenya's largest open software business. Hubs can provide emotionally energising space and networking goodwill for youth entrepreneurs to conceive, incubate, collaborate and attract youth-webbed (eg kiva, or crowd-investing),  patient (eg acumen) or sustainability investors. They also open job creation doors in ways that universities and old schooling systems fail to do wherever academia orders examinations and paper certificates as a human's final exit to learning and doing.
