Elevate Impact Accelerator’s Demo Day

Thursday December 14, 2017

Charles Hostler Auditorium - American University of Beirut (AUB)

WHAT
On the occasion of Elevate Impact Accelerator’s Demo Day, our social impact startups will showcase their innovative answers to society’s most pervasive social problems related to education, health and nutrition, water and sanitation, and more.

In less than six months, Elevate Impact Accelerator’s Batch 01 startups have participated in over 30 intensive trainings by 25 local and international experts; validated their ideas in collaboration with UNICEF, our partner in this effort; and competed and won prizes in four global and three local competitions.

WHY
Audiences will have the chance to meet these social entrepreneurs, learn about their achievements, and hear them pitch their startup ideas. The event will gather a wide variety of stakeholders in the Lebanese startup ecosystem, ranging from sectors as diverse as international NGOs and development agencies, governmental ministries and  foreign embassies, banking and private/venture capital investment, local NGOs and charitable foundations, universities and more.

ABOUT
Elevate Impact Accelerator – formed in partnership with UNICEF, funded by the Kingdom of the Netherlands, hosted by Beirut Digital District (BDD), and launched in Lebanon in July 2017 – is the first social impact accelerator created in cooperation with any UN agency globally.

Elevate’s partners include UNICEF, Beirut Digital District, the American University of Beirut, the Office of the Prime Minister in Lebanon, Alfanar, The Nawaya Network, Uncorked Studios, Penso, and many others. 

Elevate Impact Accelerator provides funding, training, and mentorship to entrepreneurs building startup enterprises that address critical challenges in Lebanon and MENA, with a focus on young entrepreneurs (aged 18 - 35) in Lebanon, including specialized support for youth from refugee and other vulnerable communities.

Its aim is to support social impact startups in developing innovative products and services that are not only economically viable, but will directly benefit the most marginalized communities in Lebanon, and help the country address challenges in the Lebanon Crisis Response Plan (LCRP) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with potential to scale outside Lebanon.
