Funding and results

Since starting work in Tunisia in 2013, we’ve helped over 65 enterprises access advice, thanks to funding from the European Union, the SEMED Multi- Donor Account and the SEMED cooperation funds account.

Grow your business in Tunisia

We’re here to help small and medium-sized businesses grow, succeed, then grow again, becoming genuine catalysts for their local economies, then their region. 

We connect our clients to local consultants and international advisers who can help transform a huge range of businesses. From the smallest looking to grow to those going global, our expert network of doers, thinkers and advisers help our clients to step up and start thinking big.

We support businesses from many industries, such as food and beverages, wholesale and retail distribution and construction and engineering. We don’t just work in the the capital. In fact, 67 per cent of our projects are outside Tunis.

Modernising production? Know how.

With funding from the European Union, we helped Sotupa, a company in Tunisia that manufactures health and beauty products, define their plan for the future and expand their business.

Whether it’s a new website, a quality management system, a marketing strategy or even a completely new governance structure, we work with you to define the best project to fit your needs. Then, we’ll support you through the whole process, using our years of experience to make sure the project achieves the best results.  One year after every project, we return to measure the impact we made. And the results speak for themselves.

Within a year of a project:

  • 46 per cent of our projects are with clients in services and trade, but we also have clients in manufacturing and agribusiness
  • 26 per cent of our projects provide advice on strategy, but we also help with organisation, marketing and quality control

Business advice

If your company could benefit from a specific type of know-how – the technical knowledge to build a website, for example, or to introduce a quality management system that will meet ISO standards – then we can support a range of projects. These usually involve working with qualified local consultants and often last around four to six months.

This advice covers specialised areas of expertise including:

  • strategy
  • marketing
  • organisation
  • operations
  • technology
  • engineering solutions
  • quality management
  • financial management
  • energy efficiency and environment

To make your businesses more competitive, our experts draw on and apply the latest best practice and thinking in these areas.  We know each of our 47 consultants in Tunisia personally and they meet our rigorous standards.  We work closely with them to deliver the highest quality advice for your business. Our aim is to build a strong, competitive market for business advice in each country that will thrive long after we’ve gone.

We cover a proportion of the costs of these projects, depending on the size and location of your enterprise and the type of advice you need.

Industry expertise

If you are looking to compete internationally or attract investment, we also have opportunities to work with an international adviser who brings more than 15 years of senior-management experience gained in the same industry.  He or she shares this know-how directly with you and your management team, to help your company become fitter and develop a credible strategy for growth.

These projects involve a strategic review of every aspect of the enterprise, from sales and marketing to exports, investment, and financial and strategic planning.  Our international advisers bring their own extensive experience in the industry – they know the latest processes and technologies that work.  They have been in executive management roles, so they understand the challenges that that brings.  But they also know the management techniques that are truly effective and how they can be adapted for each enterprise’s needs.

What’s more, our international advisers have a network of industry contacts developed over the course of a career, often providing connections that result in supplier/buyer and partner relationships and open up new markets.  We have more than 1,500 industry experts from 65 countries in our database and our network grows every year.
