AMIDEAST Entrepreneur Institute

AMIDEAST/Lebanon has recently transitioned from its Cisco Entrepreneur Institute to the AMIDEAST Entrepreneur Institute and 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 spring 2014 transition to the AMIDEAST Entrepreneur Institute, a group of 16 participants completed the first “Start Your Own Business” workshop in early July, 2014. 

The AMIDEAST Entrepreneur Institute offers:

  • Entrepreneurship training delivered by a successful Lebanese entrepreneur
  • Advice from guest speakers and business advisors who are regional and local entrepreneurs or experts
  • An online platform including complete workshop materials
  • Our network of other entrepreneurs, business leaders and experts motivated to help you succeed
  • Participant guides
  • Business template documents
  • Business videos
  • Ongoing individual support
  • Networking events
  • A central source to keep you informed about all entrepreneurship activities and support in Lebanon
  • Power session trainings on topics you request

The next “Start Your Own Business” workshop is scheduled to start on Thursday, September 18.  For more information, please contact Allyson Croft Jerab via email at or by telephone at 01-989901, ext. 234.
