SMEs are one of the economic pillars of Mauritius and yet their failure rate is high in their initial years. Causes of such anomalies are mainly lack of experience of the entrepreneur and the insufficient support mechanisms for start-up companies. In order to help start ups, Government of Mauritius put in place the creation of the National SME Incubator Scheme (NSIS) which shall conduce to the setting up of a strong and sustainable entrepreneurial culture in Mauritius.
Turbine, along with five other incubators have been accredited as Private Sector Business Incubators in collaboration of the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development (MoFED), for a public-private partnership called StartMeUp.
Startups having innovative business ideas are invited to send their applications to benefit from this scheme.
