About the Westerwelle Entrepreneurship Programme Tunis

Our Tunisian Entrepreneurship Programme supports digital and tech-enabled startups with the goal of bridging the gap from early-stage to growth-stage startups that are ready for international fundraising and expansion. With support from GIZ Tunisia, the programme offers workshops and consultancy on topics such as investment readiness, operational expansion, and building teams.

“Tunisia has a strong tech ecosystem. Our goal is to unleash this potential by providing founders with the skills and tools to enhance their products and services and gain new markets”
