Tunisian Start-up eDonec is participating in Lisbon, Portugal, in the Web Summit 2018, Europe’s biggest technology, entrepreneurship and innovation event held from November 5 to 8, 2018.
Represented by its co-founder Nader Zouaoui in the Web Summit, eDonec is a Tunisian start-up that takes a special interest in the early education field in Tunisia, said its co-founder Zakaria Hatira.
eDonec is attending the Web Summit in Lisbon to represent Tunisia and the Tunisian start-up sector, in Europe’s largest and most important technology marketplace, he told TunisianMonitorOnline.
The young start-upper and co-founder of eDonec indicated that the eDonec start-up is launched for tomorrow’s leaders who are today’s kids and because a well-elaborated equilibrium between early education and family care is key to better generations.
“eDonec is based on the fact that the early education field in Tunisia plays a big part in the equilibrium of families and at the same time is somewhat forsaken by the technological progress,” he underlined.
“We are looking at the problem of modern, busy parents who put their children in kindergartens spend 8 hours with no contact and then try to interact in a very hurried, condensed and often unhealthy way with the kindergartens,” Zakaria Hatira explained.
So eDonec developed a mobile application that keeps the parent linked with the kindergarten staff in order to receive on a daily basis pictures, videos and information about his child so that in this way he can keep up and be more involved in his child’s life while maintaining a fluid interaction with the kindergartens, he went on saying.
Speaking about the Web Summit, eDonec start-upper underlined that the presence of the company in this event is actually part of an entrepreneurship program called The Next Society which is an EU funded program that works closely with start-ups from the MENA region to further develop their activities and grow to the point of scaling up in Europe.
THE NEXT SOCIETY is a Start-up Booster Track that offers tailor-made support to Mediterranean startups to help them go international and raise funds through workshops and training sessions, immersion into foreign markets and incubation in European innovation hubs, meetings with investors and long-term coaching by committed mentors, eDonec co-founder Zakaria Hatira concluded.
