A Jordanian startup, winner of the French Tech Ticket
On Tuesday, 11 April, Ambassador David Bertolotti, Jordanian Ambassador to Jordan, in the presence of the Jordanian Minister of Telecommunications, Mrs. Majd Shweikeh, and Minister of Health, Dr. Mahmoud Shayyab, held a ceremony in honor Mr. Yahya Aqel, founder of the startup Aumet and first Jordanian laureate of the French Tech Ticket program (2nd edition).
The French Tech Ticket is a one-year program set up by the French Government to encourage foreign entrepreneurs to come and create their startups in France. In particular, it offers the 70 winners: funding of 45,000 euros, an accelerated procedure for obtaining residence permits and a 12-month incubation in one of the French tech ecosystems. Launched on June 21, 2015, the first season proved to be a success (more than 1300 applications from around 100 countries) and was therefore renewed. A third edition is currently under study.
Evolving in the medical industry, Aumet has developed a platform that facilitates mediation between medical device manufacturers and distributors internationally. The Aumet team will set up for a year in the Normandy incubator Normandy (FFWD Normandie).
