IncubMe plays a key role in the advancement of innovation in Algeria and Africa as a whole.  It contributes to the creation of a dynamic, diversified, and inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystem, supporting project leaders on their entrepreneurial journey.  

IncubMe is a pan-African incubator founded, in 2018, by Algerian entrepreneurs. It supports project leaders by offering an ideal environment that helps them turn their ideas into businesses. 

The incubator offers personalized incubation services that give project owners access to advice, guidance, recommendations, and new, formative, and inspiring experiences. It offers growth and acceleration programs to boost the performance of startups and help them expand into national and regional markets.

Some of the programs it implements include the Summer Break Challenge, a competition for university clubs across the country. There's also Africa By IncubMe, a 3-6 month incubation program designed for both early-stage, advanced startups from several countries. The program offers mentoring, collaboration, and financing opportunities, as well as access to the Algerian and African markets.

IncubMe offers financing opportunities to help startups develop and scale their projects. It also has a network of investors and an investment fund dedicated to African startups.

In addition to its programs and financial support, IncubMe has developed a platform that connects startups with stakeholders in the African entrepreneurial ecosystem. It organizes events and hackathons, offering opportunities to meet, exchange, and collaborate with other entrepreneurs, innovators, experts, and industry players. The incubator regularly organizes themed events, workshops, training courses, and competitions. To date, it has supported over 42 startups and organized more than 20 events.

In 2022, the Algerian Ministry of Startups named it the best incubator nationwide.
