In Vanuatu, the business ecosystem is limited, and there are no structure in place dedicated at promoting entrepreneurship. There is no co-working space, no incubator, and no innovation agency. The digital transformation has barely started. Consumers and citizens use few local digital solutions, whether in the private or public sectors.

 

In such context, entrepreneurship becomes challenging. Notably with our key partner vLab, yumiwork team has decided to influence the development of a conducive environment for entrepreneurship while offering practical accompaniment solutions to entrepreneurs.


We seek to provide a range of facilities, solutions and services to accompany local and international entrepreneurs in the development and growth of their business.
 

CONTEXT IN VANUATU

In our archipelago, the business ecosystem is limited. Until now, there was no modern co-working space, no business incubator, and no innovation agency, no robust structure to promote entrepreneurship.

The digital transformation has barely started in Vanuatu. Consumers and citizens use few local digital solutions, whether in the private or public sectors.

In such context, entrepreneurship becomes challenging.

 

Notably with our key partner vLab, yumiwork team has decided to influence the development of a conducive environment for entrepreneurship while offering practical accompaniment solutions to entrepreneurs.


We seek to provide a range of facilities, solutions and services to accompany local and international entrepreneurs in the development and growth of their business.
