Two initiatives to support entrepreneurship, SMEs

11-10-2018

As part of its efforts to promote entrepreneurship among young Lebanese, Touch Innovation Program (TIP) celebrated the graduation of its first cohort of promising startuppers and innovators in the presence of representatives of startups, entrepreneurs and digital influencers. The TIP program was launched earlier this year as a platform to support and empower entrepreneurs in Lebanon, noting that, every six months it selects between 4 to 6 innovative and promising ideas allowing its owners to use the Touch Lab in downtown Beirut as a space for work and meetings as well as to launch products and services and host workshops. On the other hand, the Lebanese Micro Finance Association (LMFA) is implementing the interactive training workshop which started last Saturday at the ministry of social affairs (MoSA)offices under the title, ‘The financial culture of families in Lebanon 2018’ . The project is in the framework of MoSA national campaign, ‘khali albak a ailtak’ covering over 5,000 beneficiaries from low-income families, young people, housewives, small entrepreneurs and persons with special needs. The project aims to educate people to learn to make a family budget, said project director Ola Hariri. This will help each member control and balance his/her expenses and income, hence preventing any emergency and protect them from any unwanted changes that could impede reaching their future goals, Hariri explained. It also helps them develop their capacities, acquire new skills involving income generating undertakings, she added. (AL Mustaqbal, October 11, 2018)
