The United States Agency for International Development officially launched a project Wednesday aimed at supporting businesses and creating jobs in Beirut, the Bekaa and south Lebanon. Funded by a $25 million grant from USAID and implemented by Berytech, a Lebanese firm that supports and invests in startups, the Lebanon Enterprise Development project will provide help to small and medium-sized businesses in the form of six business advisers spread across southern Lebanon. Its goal is to target and assist at least 400 businesses and create 9,000 full-time jobs by 2022 . Berytech's business advisers have already identified a few businesses that fit this description, but have also put out an open call for others to contact the project and apply for help.
