With every round of our signature entrepreneurship competitions, we re-affirm our belief that the region has a rich stock of innovation waiting to be mined and explored.

And like always, we received many brilliant ideas and startups to our Startup Demo and Ideathon competitions, but as the rules of the games dictate, we have to narrow down the selection to 20 finalists and 10 runners-up.  

The finalists will get the chance to present their ideas and startups in front of more than 600 thought leaders and industry experts from across the Levant region during the ArabNet Beirut 2014  this March 4-6 at Hilton Beirut Habtoor Grand Hotel. In case any of the finalists wasn’t able to make it to the event, the runners-up will take their place.

And now, with butterflies in our belly and drum-rolls in our ears...we announce the names of the finalists and runners-up! Congratulations...
