Berytech Hosts Wehub’s Networking Brunch Gathering a Crowd of Business Support Organizations in Beirut
On Tuesday, September 15, 2015, Berytech, the Lebanese partner of Wehubs, organized a networking brunch gathering local key members of the support entrepreneurial ecosystem.
During the brunch, 15 different organizations shared in a round table discussion, the diverse kind of support programs they provide to women web entrepreneurs featuring coaching, training, networking and funding services.
In order to ensure the active input from an entrepreneur’s perspective, a successful women web entrepreneur was invited to join the gathering and showcase her journey, challenges and aspirations. Maya Zankoul, founder of the startup Wezank, a company specialized in building beautiful and effective animated videos, gave a testimonial talk, introducing her startup and the different opportunities and challenges she faced as a women web entrepreneur. Maya took us through her entrepreneurial journey, highlighting reasons for her company’s success: “Make it simple and focus on your core value offering”, leaving the scene with a piece of advice for aspiring entrepreneurs to let their passions lead them without fearing failure. Maya highlighted as well the impact of the mentors she worked with across her journey insisting on the added value provided by entrepreneurship support organizations and the important role they can play during the journey of an entrepreneur and the development of his business.
Berytech benefited from this gathering to announce its initiative, in partnership with AUF organization, for the support of women entrepreneurs: the launch of the women entrepreneurship competition calling aspiring innovators to present their business ideas and get the needed support to grow successful startups. The winner will be receiving a cash grant in addition to an incubation program offered by Berytech giving her access to experts, coaches, mentors, hosting space and training courses for business development.
