The Tunisian American Enterprise Fund Fellows is a unique internship program launched in 2017 which was initially for students interested in supporting SME growth in Tunisia. It was designed to nurture the next generation of entrepreneurs and business people while providing talented interns to TAEF investees for a two-month period (summer) to work on pre-selected, intensive projects. For our 1st edition, we started off with 6 students from only 5 universities and the experience was just great. Other universities wanted to be included in the program and we received a high demand from students. For our second edition, we decided then to:

  • Grow the number of students
  • Open up to universities all throughout Tunisia
  • Include not only SMEs but also startups and microfinance institutions of our portfolio in the program so that students have more choices for their internships.
  • Give students the opportunity to have internships all throughout the year( not only during summer).

We hope that over time, being a TAEF Fellow will become a mark of distinction. A network of former fellows will carry the TAEF brand, support SME, startups and Microfinance institutions growth in Tunisia and provide a cohort for the young professionals. It is also possible that some interns will find more permanent employment through their internships.
