Our Story

The simcubator journey started during the Covid-19 pandemic by SIMmies who wanted to put their skills to use and enable local entrepreneurs. We firmly believe that by empowering local entrepreneurs, who have the qualified insights to create businesses that meet the needs of their local communities, as well as by helping to cultivate the entrepreneurial culture, we enable local change and maximize our impact as simcubator. We are targeting a ripple effect that local entrepreneurs building a sustainable future for their community will inspire more young talents to follow in their footsteps.

simcubator started in Bangladesh to enhance the local healthcare system by supporting and coaching Bangladeshi startups.

After successfully implementing the first round of simcubator, in 2021, SIMmies decided to spread the simcubator spirit to another location: Rwanda. Here, the focus lies on enabling Rwandan entrepreneurs aiming to improve education and sustainability aspects.

Now, both locations have proved to have sustainable partners, incredible entrepreneurial talent, and exciting results from the bootcamp. Starting in October of 2023, a new generation of SIMmies is offering the simcubator program in both Bangladesh and Rwanda. Continue to watch our social medias to see the most recent team updates.
