La Plage Factory is an early-stage business incubator located at the heart of the Tropical Valley in Mauritius with a vision to help build and grow sustainable tech startups targeting African and European markets.

We provide capital, year-round mentoring, legal services, product development, networking events and office space.

Everyone has ideas, millions of them, but the hardest thing about entrepreneurship is to convert a great idea into a successful business.

Whether your path is further seed or venture funding, or building a profitable startup, our investors, partners, and mentors are committed to your success.

We're looking for early stage tech businesses with a good idea, coachable and talented founder, and a business model that make sense.

Innovation comes from diversity, we foster cross-country and inter-cultural startup teams. We incubate international businesses provided a company is incorporated in Mauritius.

We are the perfect address for tech businesses targeting Africa and Europe from Mauritius. Send us a brief summary of your startup project and get invited for a pitch meeting.

Our gut tells us this is a good idea with a killer business model, but before a dollar is spent on a single pixel or code, our mentors will research the industry you're serving, the competition, and other proxy businesses.

Now that we have a plan, it's time to build whatever it is we've been talking about for a few weeks. It takes a little money, some help from our partners, advice from our mentors and a high level of engagement from your startup team. While the designers and developers get started, the founders will be planning the go-to-market strategy, contacting potential customers, collecting beta users, and securing all legal and financial aspects with the support of our team of mentors.

Once your web or mobile application is ready, we'll throw a launch party. This will be an opportunity to showcase and pitch your new startup to beta users, friends and family, and potential investors. You will be coached by "pitch masters" in the venture community to help you get the most from this experience. Once it's launched, the work is not over, it has only begun!

La Plage Factory is here to see you succeed and that's going to take some time. If your business needs funding to scale quickly, then our team will work diligently to connect you with the local community of business angels and a few venture funds.

If you are building a slow and steady lifestyle startup, then we'll immediately work on customer acquisition, marketing and further product improvements. Either way, you are most welcome to keep your desk for a few months until your business has taken off completely.
