About the program

Supporting innovative Lebanese startups with tech solutions for the agrifood sector

Berytech launched the Agrytech Program in 2017 with the support of the Kingdom of The Netherlands. Because of its impact and success, Agrytech was renewed in 2019, and again in 2022, under the ACT Smart Innovation Hub Initiative. 

Through the Agrytech Accelerator Program, startups receive support to develop their Minimum Viable Product, test it with early adopters, and build their capacity to establish their business from marketing, financial, management and operational levels. 

The Agrytech Accelerator Program aims to contribute to job creation and sustainable economic development while advancing the Lebanese entrepreneurial ecosystem.
