Over the years, LebNet developed several programs to cater to theLebanese diaspora and bridge interactions between Lebanese in Lebanon and abroad.
Some of our programs are catered to startups and small to medium enterprises, others target students and fresh graduates, all with the main purpose of involving our members in these activities and enable them to give back and be part of a big community.

LebNet WiT Fellows is a 5-month fellowship program that equips the next generation of Lebanese women technologists with the skills needed to successfully explore and transition into careers in technology post-university. The program, which was launched by LebNet's Women in Tech community, consists of immersive skill-development workshops, panels and discussion circles, and activities that will cultivate a tight-knit cohort of fellows.
LebNet is committed to leverage the power of its network to benefit Lebanese entrepreneurs, in the US, Canada and in Lebanon. LebNet’s Mentorship program derives from our mission to nurture and support High-Tech professionals and executives from Lebanese descent and connect with the Lebanese entrepreneurship ecosystem.
LebNet Ignite is a residential program designed to immerse Lebanese start-up founders in the Silicon Valley culture. It will give you a foundation of knowledge and access to the expertise you need to expand your vision and scale your company globally.
In 2019, we announced the launch of our internship pilot program, in an attempt to focus on growing the LebNet student constituency. The program offers internships in the areas of technology and biotech. We reached out to CEOs of Lebanese origin to line up internships and actively worked with the LebNet student members in North America and Lebanon to find matches.
