     The Ministry of Communication Technologies in Tunisia has recently granted 30 new startup label accreditations, bringing the total to 1,018 since the program’s inception.

    The breakdown indicates 14 accreditations in January, 9 in February, and 7 in March, totaling 30 for the quarter. This trend highlights the increasing activity within Tunisia’s startup ecosystem, driven by the National Program “Tunisia Emergent” and supported by the World Bank.

    Central to this initiative is the “Fonds des Fonds” (Fund of Funds), established with an initial endowment of €40 million, capped at €200 million. Funded by the World Bank and the German Development Bank, its aim is to support emerging enterprises and startups by creating specialized secondary funds for financing and support at various growth stages.

    The overarching goal of the startup label program is to position Tunisia as a favorable destination for young businesses, not only within Africa but also globally. By fostering innovation and creating a conducive environment for startups, Tunisia seeks to attract entrepreneurial ventures.

    The success of Tunisia’s startup ecosystem mirrors a broader regional trend, where governments and international organizations recognize entrepreneurship’s crucial role in driving economic growth and innovation.

    As Tunisia celebrates this milestone, stakeholders anticipate continued growth in its startup ecosystem, leveraging its talented workforce and business-friendly environment. With ongoing support from both public and private sectors, Tunisia is poised to strengthen its position as a leading startup hub in the region.
