Formerly a trading post of the Phoenicians, Kenitra is a city in the north of Morocco known as "Port Lyautey" between the years 1932 and 1956. It's 1 of 3 cities of the Rabat-Sale-Quneitra region and the capital city of the Kenitra Province. With a hot summer Mediterranean climate, this port city on the Sbu River has a population of about 431,282 souls hustling around its streets, sipping mint tea in a cafe or hanging out in a coworking venue getting creative.
You can get out of the city quickly on the fast train to Tangier or catch a shuttle train to Rabat and Casablanca that runs every 30 minutes. There are quite a few universities spawning tech savvy youth and a French International School that will carry students up until junior high school. Kenitra was established in 1912 as a French military fort and town; today it's a shipping enclave for agricultural produce, fish, timber, lead and zinc ores.
Morocco is becoming a fast-growing tech landscape despite still being in its embryo stage. Startup investment is starting to make an appearance and many hubs are popping up throughout cities such as Rabat, Casablanca and sleepy seaside towns where the sun worshippers/surfers of the globe trotting type hang out, such as Taghazout. Morocco has adopted the auto-entrepreneur framework of France that is a lever to integrate the informal economy into a legal framework whereby more than 40,000 "auto entrepreneurs" benefit from simplified taxation and access to micro-loans plus social security. Coworking spaces in Kenitra are creating enclaves for the locals to find innovative solutions to the many challenges that face the people of Morocco.
