Global Business Labs

Accelerating business

About us 

Global Business Labs is a network of business labs that seeks to accelerate entrepreneurship in emerging markets. We work in close collaboration with prominent business schools and other local partners in the business community. Through a highly selective application process we uncover entrepreneurs with proofs-of-concept and teams that possess the ambition to dedicate themselves to our 8-12 month program. We are not incubators, we are accelerators. We work closely with the entrepreneurs to turn their scalable venture opportunities into long-term successful companies.

Global Business Labs was founded in Sweden 2012 and is made up of international and local market experts with a broad range of experience in entrepreneurship and business. Global Business Labs focuses on high growth markets and currently operates in Botswana, Namibia and Uganda with plans to expand within the region in 2017


Global Business Labs helps create high-performing companies that serve as role models for others, thus fostering a culture of entrepreneurship. We firmly believe that entrepreneurship is the best way to improve everyday goods and services in the short-term, and to reduce poverty and develop economies in the long-term. 

Our research team consist of Researchers from Botswana, Namibia, Kenya, Uganda, Mozambique and Sweden.
