“Lebnet Ignite is a condensed two-week program that answers all your questions from “does my model work in the US” and “what can I do to make it work” to “what’s the Valley like” and “what are the requirements to move to the Valley”. Shadi Tabbara- Brate

“It’s been a spectacular two weeks, and my participation at the program changed my life.”  Abdallah Absi- Zoomaal


“Connections are extremely important. One of LebNet’s members, Amer Hajj, is now our advisor. He’s been in the healthcare sector and we were lucky to have someone who wanted to be involved.” Ziad Alame – Spike.


“LebNet Ignite was the best experience ever. We had access to people we can never have access to in Lebanon. The Lebanese market is in need of more role models and success stories they can look up to and seek advice from”. Audrey Nakkad – Synkers.
