Newsletter – March 2013
Letter from the President
Our once loosely held network of friends with common heritage and affinity for technology has come a
long way in the last two years. We’re now a 200+ members strong organization with regularly held
networking events, solid web presence, a periodical newsletter, and we’re registered as a
non-profit 501 (c) 3. More importantly, we now realize, more than ever before, how valuable our
collective knowledge and experience is to young Lebanese entrepreneurs who have a critical role to play in rebuilding the economy in Lebanon. Lebnet officers and board members have been working hard in the background to lay the foundation as well as to identify the proper partnerships and adequate initiatives we’d like to embark on. This is being achieved by stealing cycles from very busy people so bear with us as we proceed slowly but surely.
Partnership with Wamda, a MENA media platform for entrepreneurs whereby Lebnet members would be interviewed and featured on their platform
Collaboration with LIFE on their Lebanon ICT Initiative , soon to be launched. Lebnet will act as the Diaspora gateway and is represented by Fouad Tamer on the board of that Initiative.
Preparing an event in June to host Endeavor Lebanese entrepreneurs
Planning to hire an Executive Director for Lebnet
Structuring a project to build a database of the various skills our Lebnet members hold with their corresponding disposition to mentor others in their areas of expertise
We want to thank you all for making our events extremely successful: Dermandar (7/19/12),
Flurry (9/17/12), Dolby (12/3/12), & Prysm (3/7/13) and please continue to encourage your friends to join Lebnet !!!!
