About The Session

About Outerpond

Outerpond is a privately funded, free online, business opportunity ecosystem. Starting with Lebanon, Service Providers (Startups and companies) can find projects, partnerships, and financing featured by Service Seekers (foreign-based entities).

Outerpond acts as a needed, easy-to-use, secure e-bridge platform, that fosters cross-border collaboration, between local and foreign-based entities and corporations.

Lebanese businesses and entrepreneurs have long provided valued services across the region. They have greatly contributed to the development of first-class hubs like Dubai, not only because of their skills, work quality, and openness, but also their education and multilingual capabilities.

“Of the eight MENA countries in GEM 2018, Lebanon ranked first for new business ownership, first for Total early-stage Entrepreneurial Activity (TEA) and first for established business ownership, but third for starting a new business.”
