The once booming metropolis of Tripoli, Lebanon's second capital, has fallen into maze of abandoned buildings and street peddlers.Fadi won that week's pitch game.Although the city lacks stable electricity, water and Internet, Mikati and Sahmarani saw the real problem blocking startups was the passive mentality and isolation of local talent from the rest of the startups community in Lebanon. There is a real gap between entrepreneurship culture and Tripoli, which is why Mikati says a lot of the local youth don't understand the opportunities in working in startups. That community now has 100 members of expert mentors, freelance designers and professionals, startup business, and young hopeful entrepreneurs, a majority of whom are from or still based in Tripoli.Unlike many startup projects, the Tripoli Entrepreneurs Club supports both tech and nontech products through all stages.The Tripoli Entrepreneurs Club will continue to work with these young entrepreneurs to help develop their projects into hopefully successful startups, Sahmarani told The Daily Star.
