“Working with students over the past years made me realize just how much talent and creativity could go uncultivated in the absence of proper framework. Unquestionably, founding the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center at the Islamic University of Lebanon serves a rather decisive and compulsory objective; an objective that nurtures the spirit of creativity nationwide and unfastens the gates to welcome innovators of tomorrow.”
The Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center will serve to promote the culture of innovation and to produce an entrepreneurial environment not only at the Islamic University of Lebanon but also nationwide. This would help translate the ideas of young entrepreneurs into reality, and thus create products or services of outstanding commercial value that allow the university and its students to have effective access to the labor market. It would contribute towards offering solutions to problems related to poverty, environment, technology, sustainability, and renewable resources of energy in Lebanon and the Middle East.
