"It is not the critic who counts.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly;
who, at the best, achieves greatly, and who, at the worst, fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat." --Theodore Roosevelt

Going against the tide has put Lebanon's entrepreneurship scene back on the map, with featured articles in the leading international publications:
Four Hundred and Thirty Six from 30 countries across 6 continents signed up for the Arab World's most ambitious startup acceleration program, the Seeqnce Accelerator Program.
Throughout June, July and August, designers, hackers, marketeers participated in the Selection Phase of the 2012 Seeqnce Accelerator Program (SqP2012).
First, we interviewed them.
Then, we Shuffled them, repeatedly testing both their personal skills as well as their ability to work in groups.
In parallel, we put them through Mixers, where they had to sell their ideas: convincing, cajoling, inspiring others to form teams around them [ideas].
Once in teams, we Challenged them, pushing them to their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual limits in a 48-hour Hack/Design/Pitch marathon.
At every step, we lost a few. Only the strong and brave pulled through. The Entrepreneurs.
With the Grand Finale drawing near, the stakes are high: 76,500 USD will be invested in each of the selected startups. On August 25, up to 8 Startups will Rise on the Seeqnce Rooftop in the heart of Beirut, Lebanon.
