About The Project

Unleash Tunisia Venture Bus started as a mobile school to teach young graduates necessary skills and core competencies to launch their startups.

The first training phase occurs within on the bus as it tours throughout Tunisia. Entrepreneurs and mentors coach participants on topics such as job hunting techniques and preparing a business plan. The second phase is an embedded year of support, with joint activities like peer to peer training, job fairs, local community meetings and access to Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs). The project connects youth with each other as well as the public and private sectors, in addition to discovering market demands.

The bus is also equipped with the aim of spreading peace education among vulnerable youth in remote areas. Youth at the brink of extremism are economically empowered to start their own entrepreneurial projects.
