On September 26th, LebNet went to NYC for our first ever East Coast event! LebNet Board Members, Edgar Masri and Habibi Kairouz as well as LebNet Co-Founders George Akiki, Elie Habib, and Khaled Nasr all flew out from Silicon Valley to mark this special sold out event!

Young entrepreneurs and high profile industry leaders alike enjoyed mingling with our community, joined as new members, and learned about LebNet’s constituency as well as our roadmap for the future.

Our proudest moment was when 3 founders of NY/NJ based Lebanese startups stood up and spoke about the benefits they reaped from being mentored by other LebNet members and how they are now ready to pay it forward. (Rabih Nassar from Scriptr, Eddy Touma from Klangoo, & Tarek Fadel from FADEL).

Thank you to all attendees for your great energy and for joining LebNet as new members! We are looking forward to more events to come in coordination with the Silicon Valley team.
