Tunisia came in seventh in a special ranking of countries with the best conditions to launch a startup, drafted by Seedstars World, a Swiss company of promotion and investment which publishes every year this ranking of 30 nations after carrying out a worldwide research.
The list is based on different criteria, including how easy it is to do business, income tax, as well as taxes in general and exemptions.
