Forbes Middle East Celebrates Top Lebanese Business Leaders
Berytech Chairman and CEO Maroun N. Chammas was recently named Top Lebanese Business Leader and Innovator by Forbes Middle East, part of their Lebanon Top 100 special issue.
Forbes Middle East held a gala event in Beirut to recognize and applaud the achievements of Lebanon’s top business leaders – including Berytech’s Chammas, and its most influential people supporting the growth of the country’s economy. During the evening, Forbes Middle East unveiled its “Lebanon 100” – a list compiled of the most inspiring entrepreneurs and business leaders helping Lebanon to transform.
Khuloud Al Omian, Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Middle East said, “At our very first event in Lebanon, we have seen the energy and enthusiasm of these business leaders. We have explored Lebanon in our special edition. The future of the country is promising, and it is heading towards a positive future.”
The Lebanon 100 also includes 10 companies on the Beirut Stock Exchange, ranked according to their assets, market value, profits and revenues, and 35 professionals heading businesses across various sectors in the country. Chammas represented the entrepreneurship sector in Lebanon.
“You can be inspired by someone walking on the street, by an artist or a painting, a flower, a sunset, a conversation,” commented Chammas when receiving his award from Yacoub Sarraf – representing H.E. President of the Council of Ministers Mr. Saad Hariri, “I think life is made of moments. There is no limit to inspiration, as long as you are ready to accept things and look at them in a different way. I truly believe in the value and potential of the little things. So, I dedicate this award to all Lebanese entrepreneurs out there who inspire us all every day!”
A list of 18 of the most promising startups headquartered and founded in Lebanon include music streaming platform, Anghami; IoT Application Platform, Scriptr; and developer and publisher of online games, Falafel Games.
