Do you know any country betting 1% of its GDP only for startups? Forget the Silicon Valley, because that's what Lebanon has been putting on the table with $400m dedicated to the knowledge economy early 2014.
Lebanon has more coverage of its wars and noisy neighbors (Syria, Israel) than its startups, but they have quite a compelling history of commerce, openness and a few other assets that make them a potentially interesting startup scene.
The Middle-East and Levant region is poised to boom, demographically at least, economically probably as well. What are going to be the key Arabic speaking startup addressing this market?
In this review, we go back quite far into the Lebanese history to know why they innovate. We assess their strengths and weaknesses and key players of the tech scene.
