First Global Lebanese Entrepreneurs Investors Summit in Beirut
13 Jan 2015
More than 300 expatriate Lebanese investors and business executives and local Lebanese investors and entrepreneurs joined us in Beirut on the 22nd of December 2014, at the first Global Lebanese Entrepreneurs Investors Summit organised by LIFE’s Promote Committee and ENDEAVOR.
It was great to see such a wide and high level audience from all over the world coming together just a few days before Christmas to talk about the economy and about entrepreneurship, showing their commitment to the Lebanese economy, the faith in its resilience and the strong interest in Lebanese entrepreneurship.
The day-long event offered attendees a unique opportunity to network, to hear from existing investors, about their experience investing in Lebanon, to meet successful and promising local entrepreneurs and to explore attractive investment ideas and/or fruitful business partnerships.
The feedback on the effectiveness and impact of the Summit was extremely positive, attendees and local stakeholders actively took part in the debates and in the success of the event.
The summit is only the first step in the LIFE Promote “Invest in Lebanon” initiative to encourage diaspora members to get more involved in the Lebanese economy and to invest in Lebanese entrepreneurs and SMEs. Our objective is to progress this initiative further through a specific action plan in cooperation with ENDEAVOR, our partner in Lebanon.
Following the Summit, LIFE representatives were invited to a special edition of Kalam Ennas, one of Lebanon’s leading TV talk shows, dedicated to Hope in Lebanon, to talk about the Summit, about LIFE and our initiatives in Lebanon to support entrepreneurs and investments.
