BUILD YOUR BUSINESS
A people-focused business incubation hub
The Garage is TSIBA’s human-centred incubation hub, that helps entrepreneurs acquire customers, build sustainable businesses and create employment. Our focus is not rock stars and unicorns, we aim to help multiple entrepreneurs Start Up, Stay Up & Scale Up to create sustainable businesses, employment and contribute to the transformation of South Africa and society.
Entrepreneurs struggle to move from survivalist to sustainable and scalable businesses due to a range of challenges ranging from their skills to the ecosystem. Moore identifies this gap as the CHASM, before which the entrepreneur is caught in a loss zone, aka the valley of death (Moore).
The GARAGE helps entrepreneurs to bridge the ‘valley of death’ through a variety of interventions and seed funding that validate and accelerate their business through iterations to achieve product/market fit and to cross the CHASM.
Bootstrap your business with the fundamentals you need to make profits and create a platform for growth and impact.

Our incubator programmes are built on strong foundations of Lean Startup, Design Thinking, and Leadership & Self Development. These concepts are also taught in our Business School where they dramatically add value the lives of our students.

Entrepreneurs are able to enjoy the co-working space with a number of amenities and facilities such as a professional business address, host desks, desktops, telephone, networking events, and access to internet and wifi.
