We are proud to support young entrepreneurs who are key to Tunisia’s economic future! Acting Deputy Chief of Mission Erica Thibault announced the six winners of the Open Startup Tunisia (OST) pitching competition. In addition to joining a week-long immersion program at Columbia University, these emerging entrepreneurs will participate in the international Columbia Venture Competition where they will experience the entrepreneurship ecosystem, develop their ideas, and expand their networks. Over the last six years, the U.S. Embassy has partnered with OST and Columbia University in training over 1,200 entrepreneurs and over 300 certified coaches from across Tunisia. We look forward to continuing to foster a strong entrepreneurial culture through this unique partnership.
