The Botswana Innovation Hub was established in 2008, to promote technology-based innovation and entrepreneurship. Through in-house and partner programmes, they offer various training and networking events aimed at building capacity and creating an innovation-led ecosystem.

Better Shelter partnered with the Botswana Innovation Hub to initiate a pilot programme in Kweneng West, Botswana, where shelters were evaluated as accommodation for citizens with small means. The participants of this pilot programme will be selected with the assistance of local social workers in certain settlements and small villages.
