Instabeat was among the honoring startups at the 8th anniversary of Bader, Young Entrepreneurs Program. Check out the full write up in this link.
“Bader” Young Entrepreneurs Program President, MP Robert Fadel, stressed on the need for a “national vision to promote economic growth and competitiveness by providing the necessary facilities to SMEs, start-ups and entrepreneurships, especially in the creative fields where growth opportunities are greater”. Fadel added: “We encourage young people to stay in Lebanon to start their businesses, and support is therefore needed to help the youth carry out their projects. We believe this will lead to developing the society and turning its creative potential into further productivity for Lebanon”.
Fadel delivered his speech during a ceremony that he held along with the chair of the MIT Enterprise Forum of the Pan-Arab region, Mrs. Hala Fadel at the gardens of “Villa Sursock” in Ashrafieh, in celebration of BADER Young Entrepreneurs Program’s 8 years of success, where eight entrepreneurs supported by the two NGOs were honored. Fadel expressed a great pride in the role played by “Bader” in paving the way of success for the winners, promising that it will “continue to work on spreading the business culture, and providing all the components of initiative and entrepreneurship among youth.” He also congratulated the winners considering that the efforts deployed by “Bader” can only reach the aspired goal if “combined with a planning on the governmental level, and coupled with a comprehensive national vision aimed at stimulating the economic development.”
