The establishment of businesses prepares for the renewal and adaptation of the economy, in other words, the future. Economic policymakers have gradually become aware of the need to encourage it and, even more, not to discourage it, given the direct links between the level of business creation and innovation and economic growth.


Recognizing the natural fragility of new businesses against established competitors, coupled with the need for support and lack of funding, experience, or even premises, we cannot discuss the entrepreneurship ecosystem in Algeria without considering the number of private, public, and mixed actors whose vocation is to support the development of startups.

University incubators:

Throughout the world, universities have always been considered to be the beating heart of the economy, or rather the knowledge economy. If we take the example of the world leader in the ICT sector, Silicon Valley. We discover that its success is closely correlated with one of the world's most renowned universities, including Stanford, which has given the world a generation of leaders.

There are many more examples, underlining the importance of integrating the university as a key player in the knowledge-based economy. In Algeria, incubators have been set up in universities and business schools for some time now. The aim of university incubators is to encourage the development of start-ups by providing them with favourable conditions (technical, financial and human) for the creation of businesses based on public research projects.

The Minister for Higher Education and Scientific Research, Abdelbaki Benziane, announced on Saturday 20 March in Oran that 78 entrepreneurship centres and 44 incubators had been set up across higher education establishments nationwide.
