Building the future of Lebanon, one initiative at a time.
Our Vision & Mission
Opportunities are already here – they are just not evenly distributed.
We are committed to creating multi-generational change in the MENA region, one initiative at a time.
We believe in the power of education and the importance of youth in driving systematic and disruptive waves of change within communities.
Our mission is to change the face of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in and by the MENA world, specifically led and created by its women – the X factor.
We are here to make opportunities more equitable and accessible.

Did You Know?
Women face multi-layered challenges in the entrepreneurial sphere; these include defying social expectations, struggling to be taken seriously, building a support network, owning their accomplishments, and balancing family and business life, most of which are often exacerbated in the MENA.
We are here to empower women to be the change the world deserves and desperately needs.

Q: What are the eligibility criteria?
A: You should be a Lebanese woman. You can be based in Lebanon or abroad. You should be at least 16 years old. You don’t need to own a business as long as you aspire to start one! We’re looking at having participants from diverse fields and disciplines as we believe that diversity makes the experience and exchange more enriching!
Q: Do I need to have an idea or a business to join the incubator?
A: No, we are a ‘talent incubator’. We believe that if talented people are provided with the right opportunities and skill trainings, they will come up with the brightest ideas and put them to action.
Q: I already own a business; can I still join?
A: If you are in the early stages of your business and you would like to develop your interpersonal skills and outlook on business, this programme is right for you. If you are looking into growing your company and increasing your revenue streams, an accelerator would be better suited for your needs.
Q: Can we apply as a team?
A: Yes, a team can apply but each member needs to submit an individual application. Applications are assessed on an individual basis.
Q: How are applications assessed?
A: We don’t need to know about your CV, affiliation, degrees or background. All what we care about is YOU and your mindset. You will be asked 5 open-ended questions. All answers will be randomised and assessed anonymously by our talented team.
Q: What happens if I am accepted to the incubator?
A: Workshops will be run every Saturday for 2 hours (4-6 pm, Beirut time) from mid-October to mid-December 2020. They will cover different topics in entrepreneurship and innovation tailored for Lebanese women (entrepreneurial roadmap, ideation, strategy, innovation, leadership, pitching to investors, types of ventures, legal know-how, negotiation, etc). Coaching sessions (1-2-1) will be agreed upon with your mentors. You will have access to a closed community of like-minded individulas that will provide peer support. If selected, more details will be communicated nearer the time (Oct 10th).
Q: Will the incubator include in-person meetings?
A: No, this incubator is 100% virtual. All sessions will be delivered in English via Zoom.
Q: Who owns the ideas and businesses I come up with in LebWox?
A: You own your intellectual property.
