The KfW with the approval of the Tunisian Ministry of Finance has envisaged a new project that will focus on startups and early-stage companies. The project’s core funding (€20 million) must be allocated in the form of a loan to the Tunisian State (component 1).
A support measure (€1.5 million) will also be available for capacity building. This capacity building will address startup and early-stage company segments at the level of partner financial institutions and entrepreneurs (component 2).
The project also includes €13.5 million for the implementation of a guarantee mechanism or the support of an existing mechanism (component 3) to cover the risks associated to financing the startups and early-stage companies. It is also likely that there will be an additional commitment of up to €20 million in the form of equity capital for investments in early-stage and later-stage companies (component 4).
