Last week BGI was in Sousse, Tunisia, to close a partnership with Zeta HUB.
Everything started with Zeta HUB inauguration. It will be the first incubator of its kind in that region that will support engineering and business school students from IHE ESPITA University in their ideation process in order to build future start-ups.
They do not only have co-working space, but also 3 laboratories for different purposes. The results? From the pilot started in January they already have over 20 students involved and 6 ideas generated.
So far, so good. What we were not expecting was to find the most open minded and kind people.
At the inauguration we were honored to present BGI right next to the former Minister of Finance, Mr. Jalloul Ayed and the President of IHE Group, Sleheddine Hellara, who provided a vision of great future for the students who completely filled up the auditorium, based on real inspiring stories.
And at that moment, instead of a young audience of student on the smartphone, I saw dreamers looking further away in their horizon.
It was odd, I was already pretty inspired and I started to wonder how Zeta HUB got so many engineering students excited about entrepreneurship.
