Project targets diaspora entrepreneurs from Morocco, Tunisia and Senegal
June 30, 2017
An EU-funded project is offering free and personalised business support to diaspora entrepreneurs of Moroccan, Tunisian or Senegalese origin, with a business start-up project in the fields of agro-food, health, education, environment or green technologies in any of those three countries.
Within the framework of the DiafrikInvest project, 50 business start-up projects carried by a member of the diaspora will benefit from support in both Europe and the country of creation of the company. The selection of projects will be based on files evaluated by an international selection committee and an interview.
Anyone interested is invited to attend an information meeting in Milan on 1 July, and in Turin on 2 July, where DiafrikInvest partners will present the services offered and answer questions about the support offered, the selection procedures and the realisation of individual projects.
DiafrikInvest is a project co-financed by the European Union and led by a consortium of 6 partners: ANIMA Investment Network and ACIM in France, Startup Morocco, Am Be Koun and CJD Sénégal, and CONECT in Tunisia. It aims to promote the mobilisation of high-level talents, entrepreneurs and investors from the diaspora to boost business relations between Europe, Morocco, Senegal and Tunisia, thus contributing to economic development.
