Sousse: Regional Day of Startups
The activities of the Regional Day of startups organised by the Agency for the Promotion of Industry and Innovation (API), started on Wednesday in Sousse, in the presence of a large number of young entrepreneurs and representatives of regional authorities and support and financing structures. In a statement to TAP on the sidelines of this event, API Director Omar Bouzouada said that the event is part of the implementation of state policy in supporting private investment and encouraging the creation and development of businesses. The Day also aims to raise awareness of the support mechanisms and accompaniment to innovative project holders, as well as funding and information programmes for companies in their various stages of implementation, said Bouzouada. On the agenda for the day is a round table on areas of cooperation between small and medium-sized enterprises and startups, aiming to improve Tunisian companies' competitiveness. The aim was also to raise awareness of the incentives and financial privileges granted by the State to young promoters, and the opportunity to get closer to their concerns, including the need to simplify administrative procedures and facilitate the financing of entrepreneurship.
