DEEL aims to promote student entrepreneurship in LEBANON
The overall objective of this project is to strengthen the entrepreneurial culture and innovation in higher education to promote the emergence of companies with potential for growth and employment. It draws its inspiration from the French PEPITE program for creating “student poles for innovation, transfer and entrepreneurship”.
For students, this project aims to develop their entrepreneurial culture and provide them with a favorable environment for the creation of companies through a national status of student-entrepreneur allowing them to transfer in university credits business creation activities , by offering all students entrepreneurship courses available on a platform accessible to all, and finally by creating a coworking space in which they can find the necessary support and the favorable environment for the creation of their company , and thus the passage to the entrepreneurial act.
For universities, this project federates and makes visible the actions of higher education institutions in terms of entrepreneurship
