Second Edition of Open Start Up Tunisia (OST)

2017 09 18 OST

We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for the second Edition of Open Start Up Tunisia (OST) in partnership with Columbia University. OST is a national entrepreneurial competition whose objective is to develop ideas for innovative start-ups. This competition brings together teams from different university institutions, backgrounds and regions.

Students selected in the program work in teams to develop a project based on technology to solve a global problem. In a first round, six teams will be selected. These teams will be coached by professional trainers, experienced professors, entrepreneurs as well as MBA students from Columbia University. In a second round, a renowned jury of professionals, Columbia Professors and entrepreneurs will select the winning team. The latter will have a chance to participate in the Columbia entrepreneurship festival in New York City.

During the first edition in 2017, Chechiya team won the competition and represented Tunisia in the Columbia Entrepreneurship Festival. This is the second time Columbia opens its doors to an external team and it had to be Tunisia.
