As part of an effort by Lebanon’s Central Bank (BDL) to support the knowledge economy in the country, Pitchworthy.org (under our previous name, AltCity) was tasked to run a high-impact “pre-accelerator” program called “Bootcamp-LB” from 2015 until sprint 2018. Working in partnership with BDL and AM Bank, the Bootcamp program supported approximately 280 early-stage and idea-stage teams from around Lebanon, in diverse sectors.

Many teams went on to join accelerators and mobilize investment totaling over $3.5m, and win many regional and global competitions, often against teams from much more advanced ecosystems, with more experience, and more funding.
