The Tunisian startup ecosystem is maturing rapidly, with a significant boom in startup creation and ecosystem expansion in the last 24 months. Tunisia is still playing catch-up to other startup ecosystems in the region, specifically Egypt, Jordan and Dubai. However, Tunisia has the opportunity to position itself as the leading “core innovation” hub in the Arab world, leaving the other ecosystems to pursue “regionalized solutions” (e.g. instagram for the Arab world…).
However, Tunisian startups are likely to hit a funding wall in the next 24 months as they mature beyond the availability of local Tunisian capital. That’s where our fund comes in. We intend to take Tunisian startups to the global stage. Our strategic partner in this endeavor is the IFC (International Finance Corp.) who have identified Tunisia as a priority.
So if you are the founder or know the Tunisian founder of a startup (anywhere in the world), get in touch with us for your VC funding. We can be reached at: info @ utiqventures.com“
