Our philosophy

As an international structure, the FSAT Labs’ primary goal is to transform ideas and projects into sustainable businesses, able to grow internationally from their incubation (6 months) to their acceleration (up to 24 months). In line with our inclusion values, the FSAT incubation program is free . Our team works to give you all the skills and material necessary to build your success : professional training (legal, marketing, accounting, oral presentation and many more), investors and sales pitch decks that really make you stand out, a robust business plan for your project, and a digital MVP (Minimum Viable Product) developed in-house.
In essence, FSAT Labs invests from R300 000 to R500 000 in kind in your startup !
