UNLOCKING THE POTENTIAL OF CULTURAL ENTREPRENEURS
OmenaLab is the first Pan African hub dedicated to cultural entrepreneurship and designed to support cultural entrepreneurs looking to accelerate or grow.
Our vision is to position the cultural industry as a vehicle for economic prosperity and social transformation across Africa. We believe we should strive to preserve our unique heritage as Africa develops, and believe that those at the forefront of this should be able to make a good living from their creative talent.
If you are convinced of the power of the arts to transform communities economically and socially; if you believe in the importance of creative industries as a medium for cultural preservation and pride alongside development and prosperity; if you recognize the importance of developing the next generation of arts champions and future creative entrepreneurs: here is YOUR place!
OmenaLab provides a platform to mobilize people and resources to increase the presence and impact of cultural entrepreneurs on African economies and social landscapes by:
We mobilize the support of corporations, institutions and individuals with the resources to accelerate the activities and businesses of cultural entrepreneurs.
We provide tools, advice and events that give entrepreneurs the skills and exposure needed to improve their earning potential and enhance the impact of their work.
We create a converging point attracting and connecting key actors to nurture talents and grow the industry.
