In order to support female entrepreneurship in Tunisia, Tunisian Startups and GIZ Tunisia have launched the Women Entrepreneurs program, with goals to strengthen women entrepreneurs, founders and co-founders of startups.
The program is launching its second phase of selecting 10 women entrepreneurs, after a series of live sessions with organizations working to strengthen female entrepreneurship in Tunisia and elsewhere.
They will have the opportunity to participate in an online Bootcamp and mentoring sessions. In addition, supervised startups will pitch their projects to program partners and investors in order to claim funding.
Women entrepreneurs will also have access to support opportunities by partner organizations of the program.
This program is intended for any woman entrepreneur, founder or co-founder of startups throughout Tunisia. It must have already launched a business, be at least in the prototyping phase and have defined the “Innovation” and “Technology” components of its startup.
Applications must be submitted before October 11 at 11:59 p.m. by completing the form at this address.
In this form, applicants will be invited to attach files and submit a short video (2 minutes maximum) in which they will briefly talk about their motivations for applying to the program, with a focus on their startup’s needs and program expectations.

“Entrepreneurs have to learn the power of networking and the value of mentorship, as these are the things that most entrepreneurs take for granted. And also they must know that opportunities will not come to them; they have to go out there and create them by knocking on corporate doors with proposals. Personally, I am where I am because of a business mentor who changed the way I see things.”– Anda Maqanda, founder of AM Group in South Africa
