Local entrepreneurs' track


young entrepreneurs


DiafrikInvest will support local entrepreneurs in Morocco, Senegal and Tunisia, involving highly-qualified talents from the diaspora and civil society stakeholders, to encourage the development of entrepreneurship through the sharing of experiences.



Master Class Young Entrepreneurs

Three MasterClass Young Entrepreneurs (one per target country) will be organised, with speed-coaching sessions between successful entrepreneurs ("serial entrepreneurs") and experts from the diaspora. The sessions will focus on the stages of creation and management (business plan, marketing, international development, etc.) and 15 young entrepreneurs are expected to participate in each edition, which means a total of 45.


Mentoring program

These MasterClass will be followed by a Mentoring program to provide a long-term and personalised mentoring to local entrepreneurs by mentors from the diaspora, with mentor/mentee meetings in Europe and Africa. It aims to create lasting connections between diaspora entrepreneurs and countries of origin, to strengthen the capacities of local entrepreneurs and to encourage the creation of business partnerships.


Business Tours

Local entrepreneurs will also have the opportunity to participate in the business tours and business forum organised with diaspora entrepreneurs in Europe (beneficiaries of the diaspora entrepreneurs track).
