BioDurban is planning a dedicated Indigenous Knowledge innovation area (IMBEWU).

IMBEWU will provide mentoring and physical infrastructure for translating indigenous knowledge into commercial products. It will include a pre-incubation space, which we will call the IMBEWU area. This area will have a special focus on generating active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). In this area, we will scientifically evaluate indigenous knowledge and we will run an intensive pre-acceleration program that focuses specifically on transforming this knowledge into business plans and commercial entities.
