our projects

startup mentoring | our mentoring programme

our approach to support responsible entrepreneurs


The eight-month long international mentoring programme combines traditional one-on-one mentoring with unique learning opportunities in triangular international working groups of entrepreneurs. Our programme fosters both vertical and horizontal knowledge exchange.

A variety of innovative components like startup camps, startup safaris, lounges, expert workshops and national roundtables secure the creation of a sustainable network that offers first-hand insights into the working realities of different ecosystems.



startup space | creating an ecosystem for startups

supporting startup ecosystems with space and innovation


The idea behind the startup spaces is to provide entrepreneurs with a one-stop shop where everything they need can be found under one roof: access to peers, networks, financial resources, office space & coworking, legal advice, bureaucratic support, mentoring and other relevant stakeholders from the entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Our first space in downtown Tunis represents the most simple and effective way of achieving the goal to boost entrepreneurial activities in the country.


startup meter | analyzing needs of ecosystems

startup friendliness of entrepreneurial ecosystems


The startup meter will provide the basis for thorough assessments and effective policy interventions for specific local ecosystems. It will facilitate more actionable assessments than are possible with current national level frameworks. This is particularly relevant when considering the economic diversity within countries.

The ecosystems are assessed on the basis of a comprehensive set of indicators for different domains of a startup ecosystem. This will provide an analysis of the main strengths and deficiencies of country-specific entrepreneurial ecosystems.
