Speed@BDD’s first 3-month acceleration program will come to an end on the 22nd of December 2015. More than 30 workshops were delivered by local and international mentors with various backgrounds and expertise. Speed@BDD’s startups have been gaining a lot of exposure and 3 of them, Next Automated Robots (N.A.R), Modeo Systems and Carpolo, have been featured in Executive’s Top 20 Entrepreneurs of the year 2015. The acceleration cycle concludes with the Demo Day, an event that occurs twice a year, during which Speed@BDD’s graduating startups pitch their businesses to a carefully selected crowd of investors, top mentors, and important players in the startup ecosystem. The top 2 startups of the batch will be sent to Silicon Valley for a follow-on immersion program.
Speed@BDD’s first Demo Day will take place on Wednesday, the 13th of January 2016, at Bathish Auditorium at the American University of Beirut (AUB) from 4pm till 8 pm. Should you be interested in attending, please register here.
