In a groundbreaking move, Tunisian construction technology innovator, SeekMake, has successfully secured an impressive funding injection of $539,000 from Lafayette Group. This funding is remarkable not just for its substantial financial backing but also due to the fact that it marks Lafayette Group’s inaugural investment in either a Tunisian or foreign startup.

At its core, SeekMake touts a collection of enduring, robust, and cost-effective materials. Beyond just extending its global footprint, the company has witnessed remarkable internal expansion, ramping up its workforce from a mere four individuals to an impressive thirty-strong team within just eight months.
Prominently positioned as an intermediary between manufacturers and consumers, SeekMake has effectively streamlined the manufacturing pipeline, trimming expenditures, and expediting the production cycle by several days. It showcases an array of manufacturing alternatives, encompassing Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining, sheet metal fabrication, 3D printing, laser cutting, and engraving.
The trailblazing journey of SeekMake has been punctuated with several significant milestones, encompassing the establishment of partnerships with a remarkable count of 72 manufacturers, a widespread presence in 40 nations, and the assembly of a colossal user and manufacturer community that surpasses the 10,000 mark.
Already commanding a diverse clientele spanning Tunisia, the United States, and Australia, SeekMake is now poised to harness the fresh funds to venture into uncharted markets, with a keen focus on France and Germany.
