Beirut Social Innovation Camp
The Social Innovation Camp brings together entrepreneurs, creative minds, developers, and social innovators to come up with web / tablet - based solutions for social problems in Lebanon and the region- over 2.5 days starting on Friday, November 30th at 6:00pm.

The SI Camp kick-starts with rating the ideas on a big board, and participants from teams around the most popular ideas based on complimentary skills.Teams will spend the bulk of their time developing a prototype for their social idea and exploring the most logical business model. One-to-one coaching will be provided by experts in addition to sessions on how social entrepreneurs can make money and how social change by social media is possible.

The SI Camp culminates in final pitches, whereby teams showcase their prototypes to the Final Jury (names to be announced later) that will select the top three ideas.
