Morocco startup ecosystem overview

Morocco’s startup revolution started a few years after the Arab spring with the rise of some key ecosystem players, whose mission has been to build one of the most vibrant startup scenes on the continent. The ultimate goal is to create value, transform the economy and society, and enable talented entrepreneurs to shape their own destinies by building innovative businesses that have the potential to turn into success stories.
