Africa’s Foremost Startup Act Thickens Plot In Tunisia’s Nascent Tech Scene

By  |  March 11, 2022

Tipping out of the northernmost edge of the world's second-largest continent, Tunisia is one of the ridiculously few countries in Africa admirably positioned in a way that affords them a solid chance at a relatively uncommon opportunity; direct and easier access to the incredibly sought-after European markets. 

In mild semblance to South Africa, often referred to as the last frontier's building grounds for globally scalable tech products, the North African nation counts European heavyweights such as France, Italy, Germany, and Spain as its biggest trading partners. 

In addition to being a North African jurisdiction, Tunisia falls under the Maghreb region, which comprises four other countries; Morocco, Algeria, Mauritania, and Libya. Unlike other sub-regions in the continent, Maghreb—thanks to prolonged social conflicts and unsteady innovation drives—lays claim to but a tiny fraction of Africa's yet-unending tech boom.
