The startup is currently one of seven participants in Tunisian accelerator Flat6Labs Tunis’s second cohort, which kicked off last month (see this story).

Optimalogistic was selected ahead of seven other startups, social media analytics startup Kpeiz and software developer Vendis were the runners up

The jury panel was comprised of Seedstars World Middle East and North Africa (MENA) regional manager Meghan Warner, Flat6Labs Tunis managing director Yehia Houry, AfricInvest senior manager Yassine Oussaifi, and Wevioo president Mehdi Tekaya.

By winning the event, Optimalogistic have won a ticket to participate at the Seedstars Summit which is set to take place in Switzerland next year in April.

Social media analytics platform Kpeiz and B2B sales and distribution management software developer Vendis came second and third respectively.

The next Seedstars World pitch event that takes place in Africa will be held in Casablanca on 6 July.

Editor’s note (22 May 2018): We originally stated that the Casablanca pitching event will be run on 24 May, when it was in fact 22 June. Seedstars alerted Ventureburn today that the event has been postponed and will now only run on 6 July.
