With the launch of Berytech in 2002 by the Saint-Joseph University, we were able to set the ground for the thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem that is present today in Lebanon, and we have worked continuously to reinforce its growth.
Our mission to provide a dynamic environment for the creation and growth of startups and SMEs aims to reverse the brain drain, by providing opportunities to Lebanese talents beyond the dwindling job market. We are giving these talents the choice to create the jobs they want for themselves and take hold of their own future, and in direct consequence, shape the future of our economy.
