Startup Incubator Gambia
Empowering the next generation of entrepreneurs

WE ARE AN INCUBATION CENTER. A STARTUP HUB. A NETWORKING CORE.

In short, we are the evangelists of entrepreneurship.

We are the first ever business incubator center in the Gambia. The Startup Incubator Center is a co-working space for young entrepreneurs, with cubicles, computers, high-speed internet, printing and a fully equipped training room with a capacity of 25 participants. This center staged clients who met and discussed with mentors and did site visits by incubator clients.

We find that Startups face common challenges as they seek to transform their ideas into successful, high-growth businesses. Getting connected to the right insights, mentors, influencers, industry partners, and investors can make or break a startup. Joining Startup Incubator means you're joining a global community in getting exposure for your startup and the orchestrated facilitation of resources through our network of contacts.
