Banque du Liban (that is Central Bank of Lebanon) is, for the second year, organizing the BDL Accelerate 2015 startup conference following the success of the BDL Accelerate 2014 which I attended last year and wrote about (click for the posts). The conference will be help on December 10, 11 2015 at Forum de Beyrouth. Registeration is free, what are you waiting for?
Here’s a taser from last year:
Banque du Liban (BDL), or the Central Bank Of Lebanon, is organizing the first international startup conference in Beirut, Lebanon. The conference is known by “Banque du Liban Accelerate 2014”. Accelerate 2014 will be a melting point for entrepreneurs, startup companies, investors, and a select of highly prolific and successful people including ambassadors, ministers, industry leaders and professionals. And there will be fifty speakers (see below) who are mostly successful entrepreneurs and startup founders.
It is an invitation-only conference whose theme was chosen to be Blueprints for Success. BDL is aiming that the conference be a building block that supports current and new startups in Lebanon and help to accelerate their development and success, hence the “Accelerate” name and the theme “Blueprints for Success”.
