From more than 150 applications, the first six promising start-ups from Tunisia and Ghana were selected for the African European Digital Venture Program (AEDV) of UnternehmerTUM, center for innovation and start-ups at the TU Munich.
The program gives start-ups the opportunity to get to know the European and German ecosystem in a concrete and practical way, to establish first contacts that can be the basis for future business and to acquire relevant knowledge for this purpose. The initiation of partnerships in the field of digital transformation, also across continents, will create a win-win situation for both parties.
The project is supported by the Special Initiative "Decent Work for a Just Transition", which operates under the brand Invest for Jobs.
More information on the program can be found here.
The consortium around the company Eranove successfully applied for a grant by the Facility Investing for Employment. The Facility is part of Invest for Jobs. On 26 January 2023, the grant contract for 5.17 million euros was signed in Abidjan. In three years, 14,000 people will attend the various training courses offered by the academy and more than 1,100 jobs are expected to be created.
Since its launch in June 2022, the Soft Landing initiative of Invest for Jobs in Tunisia has facilitated the arrival of 10 European and African IT companies in the country. In return, the companies committed to create over 100 high-quality tech jobs for Tunisians.
To implement BMZ’s development-policy priority areas in the 20th legislative period and to address changing global challenges, the Special Initiative on Training and Job Creation will have a new name and focus. As of January 2023, it will be called Special Initiative "Decent Work for a Just Transition".
