While continuing to consolidate and grow core business activities, GIFA Business Group has found the appeal of new venture strategies hard to resist. We strongly believe these strategies will help us facilitate entry into new business areas with innovative products and services, With new ventures, GIFA Business Group aims to capture vital ventures of the entrepreneurial community, maximize profits and establish a cutting edge in the current global economic environment. 

With this in mind, GIFA Business Group has established the ''Business Incubation Centre'' that presents a dynamic opportunity to provide aspiring entrepreneurs all the tools to gradually turn their idea into profitable businesses. The Business Innovation Center is the brainchild of Mr. Yusuf Kisa, the president of GIFA Holding Limited.

GIFA Business Group has set aside a $40million investment for seed funding, incubation, mentoring, training, knowledge dissemination and best practice guidelines for those participants whose projects or business ideas are selected and each will be given time to help turn these ideas into viable businesses with a global outlook. The main objective of an innovation and incubation center is to discover and fund the world’s next generation of global entrepreneurs and business startups. The project has already been launched and is expected to produce some results around next year, 2023. 

What is Business Incubator

A business incubator is a workspace created to offer startups and new ventures access to the resources they need, all under one roof. In addition to a desk or office, incubators often provide resident companies with access to expert advisors, mentors, administrative support, office equipment, training, and/or potential investors. Most incubators are created as temporary launching pads for new businesses, with the expectation that participants will eventually graduate and move out. 

However, not all graduates are successful, unfortunately, and some decide their business concept wasn’t viable and shut down instead, so business incubators seek to curb that. The GIFA Business Group strategy and efforts are focused on smaller and medium-range businesses. This will be one of the key investments over the next 3 years and in total $140 million is earmarked for various expenditures and investments. Additionally, over $85 million dollars was allocated for financing the retirement village in Iskele for the aging population. So, far everything is look very promising!
