STAND Up! has selected 10 textile and fashion start-ups to join the access to finance in Tunisia. After the call for applications that was closed on 21 March 2022 CITET, which is one of the Tunisian partners of the project, selected a group of entrepreneurs to develop their financial literacy skills, get knowledge on how to raise funds and get chances to meet with local and regional investors to potentially secure funding opportunities.

The selected entrepreneurs will participate in a 10-days-long training that will focus on building the financial projections of their start-ups, understanding readiness, trends and opportunities in the investment landscape. The training program in Tunisia will be followed by two events organised in the country to provide investment feedback to the entrepreneurs and receive local and regional exposure with potential investors.

Among the selected participants, 50% have participated in the capacity building phase and the incubation phase.

The STAND Up! project, funded by the EU under the ENI CBC Med programme, aims to enhance scalable, replicable, and inclusive circular economy ventures in the Mediterranean by developing an ecosystem of business support, innovation, and technology transfer that will lead to sustainable job creation for youth and women.
