Corine Kiame, Chief Investment Officer at IM Fndng, was invited to join an exclusive roundtable, entitled “Towards a Sustainable Youth Entrepreneurship Policy for Lebanon”.
The roundtable was hosted by UNDP Lebanon and Arabnet on Thursday, June 2 at 3:00 pm, at Beirut Digital District.

This activity is being implemented by UNDP as part of a broader project for youth in the region titled Empowering Youth through Transformative Entrepreneurship Support that is funded by the Big Heart Foundation.

The project aims to support youth entrepreneurs by laying the foundation for innovation and scale in the incremental development of policies, systems, and capacities of institutions and for young people to start and scale inclusive SDG impact-oriented businesses that would generate employment for other youth and contribute towards green growth and resilient societies.

This roundtable hosted senior and executive leaders from across different industries, to exchange knowledge and help shape a comprehensive understanding of the current state of the Lebanese youth entrepreneurship ecosystem, draw a preliminary overview of their main struggles and challenges and identify business opportunities by leveraging Lebanon’s youth competitive advantages. The findings from this roundtable will inform the design of a youth entrepreneurship strategy.
