After five months of continuous effort and work, seven students’ companies have set up and run their small business as part of the INJAZ Company Program, in order to compete for the Best Company award during the Young Entrepreneurs Competition 2016 held at the Lebanese American University (LAU) on October 1st, 2016.

The “Best Company“ award for each of the school and university tracks was delivered by Dr. Saad Andary, Vice Governor, Banque du Liban and member of the competition’s judging panel to Healthletfrom Lady of Balamand High School and to “Riwayat” from the Lebanese University- Faculty of arts: “Banque Du Liban takes pride in supporting Lebanon’s future generation of entrepreneurs. This competition is a key instrument for encouraging Lebanon’s youth to become innovative business leaders, and to play an essential role in strengthening our economy and positioning Lebanon on the global economic map."

The competition and the Awards Ceremony were held under the patronage of Banque Du Liban, and with the support of ABC, event Gold sponsor, and the United Nations Information Centre in Beirut (UNIC Beirut) and Toastmasters as event partners. The Awards’ Ceremony was hosted by Mr. Andre Abi Awad, Founder of Entreprenergy.



This experience helped us have more confidence, be more responsible, and have leadership, which is something we lacked. This experience also changed the way we interact with people and it made us look at things differently. (...) We’ve learned that group work is the most important management lesson because when working together, one gets more support, ideas, and confidence."


As Design students, getting into business was not an easy process. We learned a lot from this experience as we grew and developed a better sense of entrepreneurship. Our team was capable of planning, analyzing and solving problems, pitching new ideas, handling professional interviews and public presentations, multitasking, and most importantly launching a company."

Rami Boujawdeh, Deputy General Manager, Berytech, INJAZ Volunteer

It was such a worthwhile experience, not only for me but for the students I taught as well. With the fast paced world we live in today, how do our communities’ young people keep up? How are they prepared not to only obtain employment but to understand and excel in today's business market? (...) With the INJAZ entrepreneurship program, I know that I am shaping the minds of tomorrow. Today, through this program [Company Program], I have the utmost satisfaction knowing that I am making a difference in the lives of these 11 dear students & leaders."
