Business Incubation Academy™ (BIA) is the designated entrepreneurial arm of G-CITI™ Campus

It offers entrepreneurial training to unemployed youth to start a business, especially an IT Business. Research G-CITI Campus has shown that youth, after they have obtained vocational digital skills, has the desire to pursue a career in IT.

The overall objective of this program is to empower unemployed youth to create tech start-ups after they have completed their studies. We identify start-up teams from the tech & creative industries scene, advise them in all entrepreneurial matters and qualify them for market entry. 

70-80% of small businesses don’t survive their first year, says Proudly South African CEO, Eustace Mashimbye, with only 9% surviving 10 years.
