With a passion for Innovation and technology,Mr. Stanley Mwalembe (Scientist) had a vision for the creation of having a Technology Development Environment (TDE) that could foster technological and innovative ideas, making them a reality, either by focusing on solving existing problems in our community or bringing new products to the market by applying engineering and technological expertise and using locally available resources.

Over the years, Mr Mwalembe has inspired a number of engineers, scientists, technicians and artisans, but he’s now finally got together his own team that are equally passionate about innovation and technology, and it’s this team, along with Mr Mwalembe , that has become the Co-founders of STICLab.
