Jusoor opened up registration for its fourth annual Entrepreneurship Competition this month. The competition is open for application submission until February 10 for all Syrian entrepreneurs who want to develop their idea, acquire skills in entrepreneurship, prepare for accelerators and seed investors, and win financial prizes.
After a ten day training bootcamp that is held in Beirut, the Jusoor Entrepreneurship competition concludes with a final demo day and a gathering to be held at Beirut Digital District. The final event will take place on March 3 and is open to the public to attend and view the pitches live. The final 3 winners will be selected by a panel of judges and nominated to win the financial prizes of $10K for the 1st place, $7K for 2nd place, and $5K for 3rd place winners.
The competition also focuses on driving female lead startups to participate in addition to young and ambitious Syrians that have become recently displaced and are settling into their host countries around the world.
The competition is open to projects in any field with a focus on social and economic development ideas. In order for the teams to be eligible, at least one team member must be Syrian, and the project must be in its seed stage, meaning that the team can demonstrate traction and prove the potential of their project. Participants should show potential growth that is measurable and scalable.
