MEDIA LOVES TECH is pleased to announce its cooperation with the Tunisian non-commercial incubator AFKAR!

After two successful exercises, the MEDIA LOVES TECH competition and support program for media startups wanted to strengthen its presence in Tunisia. It is now a done deal since two media projects have been given the opportunity to join the future AFKAR cohort.

They will thus benefit from an additional incubation of 6 months starting in November.

In 2020, MEDIA LOVES TECH opens to Maghreb countries! 

In 2020, the incubation program becomes regional: in addition to Tunisia, teams from Morocco and Algeria are also invited to submit project ideas! 

In a region where economic challenges are similar, the markets of the Maghreb countries can enrich each other. This is why MEDIA LOVES TECH is convinced that the expansion of its network in Morocco and Algeria will optimize the potential of the projects and the work of the teams. 

Stay tuned !
