In 2010, two Lebanese startups scored big wins at a two-week interval from each other. Mimix, a startup for the hearing impared won Global Startup Battle Week 1, quickly followed by Capsu.ly, a community based storage solutions startup which sweeped through Global Startup Battle: Wild Card by gathering three times as many votes as the runner up.
This year's Global Startup Battle will take place in over 200 cities across the globe from November 14-24. The organizers are looking for passionate people to join the organizing committee to help Lebanon be a part of the largest startup competition in the world!!
