The American Chamber of Commerce in Tunisia (AmCham Tunisia) as the representative of the Tunisian private sector in the US-Tunisia Joint Economic Commission aims to support Tunisian SMEs who wish to expand internationally by helping them with the financial and logistics obstacles they face.
As such, AmCham Tunisia decided to launch the “Soft Landing in Silicon Valley” program, aimed at assisting Tunisian start-ups to enter the US market, by providing them with the opportunity of a presence (limited to one month per participant to begin with) within Galvanize.
This prestigious co-working space located in San Francisco, California, hosts international companies such as Google for Entrepreneurs, Silicon Valley Bank, IBM Blue Mix, PWC, as well as other companies operating in the field of new technologies and digital economy.
The start-ups selected for this program will have access to a dedicated workspace, conference rooms and will also have access to the various courses provided by Galvanize They will also have the opportunity for free participation in all community events held during their stay.
This project is a major opportunity for participating Tunisian start-ups, as it will allow them to have access to work space and to meet with potential clients and investors; and will also give them a chance to operate for a month in the unique environment of Silicon Valley and create connections/networks with influential actors of the US Markets.
The program is open to Tunisian startups working in the digital economy and with the potential for development in the North American market.
AmCham Tunisia would like to thank all of its sponsors and members who have contributed to the financing for this program destined for the fantastic Tunisian youth.
