The co-founders of the Cedars Tech initiative are looking to raise €30,000 to allow ten Lebanese startups to participate under the Lebanese Pavilion at VivaTech 2021 virtual exhibition.
Cedars Tech is a non-profit, non-political, non-sectarian initiative co-founded by Association Franco-Libanaise des Professionnels de l’Informatique (AFPI), Berytech, Smart ESA, and the Franco-Lebanese Chambre of Commerce to create a strong connection with the Lebanese Diaspora to boost the growth of Lebanese startups and SMEs locally and internationally while creating jobs within Lebanon.
Cedars Tech unites innovative Lebanese companies around a common and strong identity, and builds upon a shared set of values to promote “Made by Lebanese” engineering and to foster cross-fertilization among the Lebanese Technology industry within FinTech, CleanTech, GreenTech, BioTech, etc. The ultimate goal is to make Lebanon an attractive country for startups and investors by fostering the development of a knowledge economy.
