In anticipation of the second edition of Gitex Africa Morocco, which will be held in Marrakech between May 29 and 31, under the High Patronage of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, may Allah assist Him, a call for applications has been launched for the benefit of Moroccan startups.

Launched with the support of the Ministry of Digital Transition and Administration Reform, this important operation entitled “GITEX AFRICA Morocco 200” will enable the selected startups to share their innovative projects and ideas and to showcase their potential and know-how.

This international event will also be an opportunity for Moroccan startups to exchange and share their experiences, and benefit from support put in place ahead of the event, in particular through roadshows and expert boot camps with the aim of preparing them for the event.

Considering the importance that the startup ecosystem plays in the development of innovative entrepreneurship, the 2024 edition will include 200 startups, increasing the capacity by twofold compared to the previous year. 

To guarantee a successful selection operation, an evaluation committee was established, led by the Agency for Digital Development (ADD), including a number of stakeholders representing the Moroccan digital ecosystem.

Interested Moroccan startups must submit their applications on the dedicated digital platform before April 8, 2024, at midnight.

Startups wishing to participate must meet the following conditions:

  1. Be a company under Moroccan law, or be a company founded or co-founded by a Moroccan residing abroad;
  2. Be a company enjoying characteristics inherent to a startup;
  3. Offer a product/service integrating a new technology component.
