AMIDEAST Entrepreneur Institute


AMIDEAST/Lebanon transitioned from its Cisco Entrepreneur Institute to the AMIDEAST Entrepreneur Institute in the spring of 2014. The Institute continues to offer training, networking, and individual support to people in Lebanon who want to launch or grow a business.

Since the launch of its Cisco Entrepreneur Institute in 2010, AMIDEAST/Lebanon has trained over 200 aspiring entrepreneurs, business owners, and professionals on how to start a business, grow a business, develop a sales team, and spur business growth using ICT. Following the transition to the AMIDEAST Entrepreneur Institute, two groups with a combined total of 31 participants completed the “Start Your Own Business” workshop.
