The Monastir-based startup was founded in 2017 by Jean-Philippe Nitkowski, Jihed Bibani and Mohamed Ben Hadj Aissa.
The win comes days after the startup announced in a blog post on its website last week that it had raised $200 000 in seed funding. One of the investors in the round, Seemba pointed out, was the Oman Technology Fund (OTF) which contributed $100 000.
