Ebene is located at the center of the island and is the second most important business hub after Port Louis. It is the preferred destination for business and professionals to create wealth and employment through the use of information technology.
The construction of Ebene Cybercity began in November 2001, with the suburb being promoted as a new information technology hub for Mauritius and as a link between African and Asian markets. The aim being to create a Hi-tech office area in order to dynamise the country. As a result, it is also referred to as Ebene Cybercity or Cyber City.
The creation of the Ebene Cyber City was the first initiative towards the transformation of Mauritius into a Cyber Island. Within a record time of 18 months, the iconic Cyber Tower One, a building of 44,000 square meters on 12 floors, emerged and the first occupants moved in from 2004.
The Cyber tower 1 was voted Intelligent Building 2005 by the Intelligent Community Forum of New York. This award propelled Mauritius to a higher level of technology-led businesses and Ebene Cyber City rapidly became the reference place for IT Software development and high-end IT enabled services, just to name a few.
Ebene is ideally situated at the center of the island, along the main M2 highway, only 15 kilometres south of the capital, Port Louis and around 35 kilometres from the international airport.
