Operating across a network of five incubators in Senegal and The Gambia, Teranga Tech Incub provides young entrepreneurs with equipped workspaces, programs, and events to help them innovate and succeed.

Teranga Tech Incub, a network of five incubators in Senegal and The Gambia, is backed by the French Embassy and aims to promote and support youth entrepreneurship, particularly in the digital sector.

The network offers two main services through its incubators in Dakar, Saint-Louis, Kaolack, Ziguinchor, and Banjul. The first is a six-month mentoring program supporting around 70 projects per year across two cohorts per incubator. This program helps entrepreneurs structure their projects.

Secondly, the network organizes events promoting innovation and entrepreneurship, including events hosted by other organizations lacking a presence in Senegal or Gambia.

Teranga Tech Incub also provides equipped and connected workspaces, collaborative areas, and expert networks to strengthen the ecosystem. They hold awareness sessions on entrepreneurship and organize events featuring experts in various sectors like blue economy, agritech, and audiovisual.

Examples of supported companies include online store platform Boutique Sénégal, Web3 specialist Kucibok, and maritime safety solutions provider O'Connect.

To achieve its mission, the network has partnered with organizations like Polaris Asso, Concree, Jokkolabs, and Simplon.
