Welcome to our site!

The Mauritius Business Growth Scheme (MBGS) Unit was set up by the Government of Mauritius in collaboration with the World Bank and became fully operational in March 2011. The overarching objective of MBGS is to facilitate the maximum possible growth in private sector economic activity by supporting enterprise productivity and competitiveness, specifically in areas of skills and training, technology upgrading, innovation, quality standards and business development.

MBGS offers two exciting financial schemes to Mauritian private sector companies, which can be existing, well established businesses, or innovative start-ups. Our small but dynamic team of advisors is also available as and when required to provide mentoring services to interested parties free-of-charge.
