We have been accompanied, pushed and supported since the very first day we came to Turbine . We were prepared for weeks by awesome coaches to pitch our new concept during the test drive #4 which we won in the ‘Most Promising Idea Category’! We are extremely grateful to be part of Turbine’s family.
The Test Drive is one of the best programmes test business ideas and the commitment of founders to their projects. Turbine is uniquely adapted for startups in the Mauritian context. With experienced coaches and consultants, the entrepreneur is provided assistance throughout the entire duration to structure and gear up their businesses to be investor ready.
