#OpenInnoWkLB aims to support a growing community around open source software, hardware, disruptive and creative art, and inspire young developers, university students, and creative people of all ages to build networks with the open source community. This effort was initiated by the joint effort of the World Bank and the Lebanese Ministry of Telecommunications to support progress towards launching the MiHub (Mobile Innovation Hub) in Lebanon, incorporating open innovation principles.
AltCity is Lead Organizer of OpenInnoWkLB.
Key Community Partners include: HBR, Naharnet, LebGeeks, Bader Young Entrepreneurs Program.

The Challenge

We are launching a competition for great open source/open innovation solutions to critical challenges in Lebanon that can scale to the world. The Challenge areas will be announced in January 2015, with the final pitches during #OpenInnoWkLB. Top teams will get funding, startup support, plus the opportunity to travel to key conferences and startup programs in Europe and MENA.
