Berytech organises a 3-day intensive virtual bootcamp in the framework of the Regional Innovation Factory, an activity of THE NEXT SOCIETY Tech Booster Program.
Building on the successful pilot of the Innovation Factory program in Lebanon that accelerates applied research projects to market, and leveraging on the NEXT SOCIETY community, Berytech has built a regional digital edition of the program, called the Regional Innovation Factory.
Twenty-one (21) projects will be selected from Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, and Tunisia to participate in the bootcamp, led by an international expert, and focusing on teamwork, networking, mentoring sessions with international and local experts, learning, applied knowledge and exchange of expertise. It will aim at helping you explore market, funding, commercialization, and business opportunities, as well as develop a valid business model for your innovation.
Receive technical and practical guidance and interaction with experts:
- Develop your own business model
- Learn about intellectual property
- Develop your commercialization and market strategy
- Develop a process for technology protection

- Prepare your pitch to present it to investors and partners
The teams will pitch in front of jury members to get feedback and get selected to receive incubation support from Berytech. In February 2021, seven (7) selected teams will attend a virtual matchmaking event with industry experts and potential investors for the selected projects. The selected teams will benefit from the 4-month incubation support from Berytech and partners including technical and business assistance. One team will be selected for a Soft-landing opportunity to get short-term business and collaboration support from a European partner.
