Speed@BDD is recruiting 10 aspiring startups for their upcoming acceleration program in September, where selected entrepreneurs will attend a series of events and infosessions on how to secure equity funding and to take their ideas to the next level. 
Selected applicants will have to consider Beirut their home as they will be part of the growing community of startups and digital tech scene at the Beirut Digital District (BDD), where they will have the opportunity to network with and learn from numerous mentors and experts in the regional entrepreneurship ecosystem.
During the 3-month period, startups receive a $30k cash injection as well as the daily guidance of tech experts who will advise on how to make the money work for them in the long run.
The rules for participation are quite simple, all one need is:
  • A team of, at least, 2 cofounders
  • An Idea or a Minimum Viable Product (something to show for)
  • Be based in Lebanon for the entire 3-month acceleration program 
Once the program is over, there will be a Demo Day, where graduating startups pitch their newly-formed business models to a handpicked crowd of investors and influencers on the regional entrepreneurial scene, selecting in the process 2 startups to get sponsored for a potential Silicon Valley follow-on immersion
Be sure to apply before July 20
Speed@BDD has been gaining a lot of traction in recent years especially with the line-up of experts and startups that have previously participated in the program.
