Under the broad umbrella of fueling and supporting entrepreneurship, Berytech’s main activities and programs fall under several industry verticals: Agriculture and Food, Water, Energy and Food, Clean Technology, Green Entrepreneurship and Circular Economy, and Social Entrepreneurship, all involving ICT and innovation.
The following is an overview of the programs and projects developed and managed during 2020.
Berytech provides entrepreneurs with hosting facilities while serving their needs in terms of space, infrastructure and value-added services. This allows them to grow within its community and build interconnected networks of like-minded innovators. It also gives them the chance to exchange expertise and knowledge.
Berytech currently runs 3 sites in Lebanon serving entrepreneurs in the greater Beirut Area, with a fourth innovation park planned in Amchit. Members of the Berytech community, including hosted tenants and alumni, have access to all the programs, competitions, networks and resources that Berytech offers.
The Berytech Fab Lab opened in October 2017, co-funded by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and Berytech. It is the sole organization in Lebanon member of the Fab Foundation, the main international authority certifying Fab Labs around the world, offering a technical prototyping platform for innovation and invention, aiming at turning ideas into prototypes.
The Berytech Fab Lab is an open-access digital fabrication lab bringing together a great community of makers and offering top of the art machines for hardware and electronics fabrication.
The Berytech Fab Lab proposes workshops to develop makers’ skills and competencies in hardware and software usage. It also gives Lebanese makers access to local and international networks of makers and entrepreneurs.
Berytech’s role is multifold in building an all-inclusive ecosystem for its own entrepreneurs while contributing to the growth of the Lebanese entrepreneurial ecosystem in general. It has helped shape the cultural norms of the society in accepting and supporting the concept of entrepreneurship, while its different activities continue to push new avant-garde concepts. Berytech serves as a nucleus in connecting different stakeholders in the ecosystem and it strives to influence policymakers and legislating bodies to issue laws that benefit the ecosystem.
