The Turbine is an incubator and start-up accelerator that helps aspiring entrepreneurs turn ideas into start-ups, and early stage businesses into thriving, successful companies. Its vision is for Mauritius to become a vibrant and internationally recognised innovation and start-up hub.
The Turbine runs four different programmes and a business idea competition geared towards pre-start-up and start-up business ventures. The programmes offer the mentoring and guidance, operational support, physical space, and access to finance and networks that entrepreneurs need to focus on developing their businesses.
The Turbine's programmes are open to both Mauritian and foreign nationals, with no restrictions on age or gender. Projects can be from any sector as long as they are innovative and bring something new to the table (a new product, a new service, or new way of doing something). It is an independent organisation that receives financial and operational support from ENL and other corporate partners. All profits are reinvested in the organisation.
