Jason Delorie

Founder ConnectMe

It takes support and guidance to truly realize the potential of your idea. Turbine offers all this support in one place. Turbine has been of great value in the setup of ConnectMe and the launch of our first product www.tutorme.mu , a platform connecting anyone looking for tuition in Mauritius with trusted tutors. We would highly recommend the incubation program to anyone looking to test, validate and grow their business.

Hishaam Ibrahim

Founder Metennkoste

Turbine has been a fantastic experience because it helped us step into an entrepreneur’s life with the right mindset and the proper tools. The support from the team and other start-ups were incredible. More than just an organization that will help you set up your business, Turbine is a community that celebrates seeing businesses thrive and individuals achieve their full potential.

Jade Li

Founder Katapult

The incubation programme gave me the support that I needed to create a prototype and launch it. During the one-year programme, my ideas and assumptions were challenged and as a result I was able to build a better product to better serve my customers.
