Startup Maroc hits the road again with an ambitious roadshow

April is a busy month for Startup Maroc. The group of friends, who have been working for three years to help foster an entrepreneurial culture in Morocco, has turned into its own success story, as we explained in this profile last year. Now, after changing their name to a more marketable one – goodbye ‘AMPII’, hello ‘StartUp Maroc’ – the organization has added new cities to its Startup Weekend roadshow, announced an upcoming report on the state of Moroccan entrepreneurship, and is launching the second edition of their national competition StartUpCup.

At least, it’s the startup that won the first edition of Maroc Startup Cup, the largest startup competition in Morocco. The finale took place on Saturday, November 23rd at Casablanca’s Technopark.
