In 2022, Mauritius achieved a score of 1.02 points on the Startup Ecosystem Index, placing it among the highest-ranked African nations in this category, according to data released by StartupBlink. This performance can be attributed in part to the vital role played by the Mauritius Start-up Incubator.

Mauritius Start-up Incubator (MSI) is a support hub for burgeoning enterprises seeking growth and guidance in Mauritius. Established in 2016 by entrepreneur Nicolas Goldstein, MSI distinguishes itself by providing comprehensive support services, encompassing the entire journey from launch to the establishment of successful businesses.

At MSI, startups benefit from an optimal growth environment featuring modern facilities, access to a network of experts and mentors, tailored training sessions, workshops, and crucial financial and administrative support. The fully-equipped incubator offices, wired and furnished with 1 to 25 workstations, boast advanced internet technology.

Beyond physical infrastructure, MSI extends its support to consulting services for staff recruitment and aids in the establishment and accounting processes for companies in Mauritius. The incubator facilitates trademark registration, assists in securing occupation permits (OP) for expatriates, and guides businesses through various administrative procedures.

Moreover, MSI also advises companies interested in establishing themselves in Mauritius, offering insights on company incorporation, networking with offshore management entities, and navigating the complexities of obtaining work permits, occupancy permits, or other necessary authorizations for digital enterprises.

Its backers include financial institutions like Banque des Mascareignes, Barclays, Standard Bank, Bank One, MAU Bank, and Mauritius Commercial Bank, among others. They also include major corporations like Harel Mallac Group, Evaco Group, and CIEL Group.
