The American University of Beirut and the Beirut Digital District Wednesday launched their new partnership designed to foster young entrepreneurship, a welcomed move in a country with over 20 percent unemployment among its youths according to the International Labor Organization. Ayman Kayssi, associate professor at the AUB's Electrical and Computer Engineering department and Mohammad Rabah, General Manager at ZRE, the developer of the BDD made this announcement at ArabNet Beirut 2017, following a panel discussion on universities' role in stimulating entrepreneurship among students. However, although Josiane Fahad-Sreih, director at the Institute of Family and Entrepreneurial Business at the Lebanese American University agreed that passion was necessary, she underlined that it was possible and important to universities to educate students on how to become entrepreneurs.
