LebNet signed a memorandum of understanding with Outerpond, an online business opportunity ecosystem, to enable cross-border business opportunities between service providers in Lebanon and service seekers in North America.
“LebNet is excited about this partnership with Outerpond and looking forward to creating more opportunities for North America and Lebanon,” said Jeanine Akiki, LebNet’s Executive Director.
Together, Outerpond and LebNet will promote cross-border business opportunities, enable interconnections between providers in Lebanon through Outerpond and seekers through the LebNet network, which might lead to strategic partnerships, and organize joint online events to promote Lebanon as an outsourcing hub.
“We are thrilled by the partnership with LebNet which will create numerous collaboration opportunities between Lebanon based SMEs and North American tech companies.”
Outerpond recently received support from USAID’s Trade and Investment Facilitation (TIF) project to help the development of their platform and help increase the exports of Lebanese goods and services.
