At an event in Ashrafieh's Liza Restaurant, 35 socially and politically connected Lebanese gathered for the first time to inaugurate Nexus Lebanon. At the center was Lynn Zovighian, who welcomed her guests with an ardent vision for paving the way to a better Lebanon and region. The Nexus Global Youth Summit was founded in 2011 as a global movement to connect young social entrepreneurs, philanthropists and activists to create an active network of changemakers. The event was attended by a hand-selected group of Lebanese nationals and members of the diaspora who represented a diverse array of social entrepreneurs, philanthropists and business leaders. Membership in Nexus is selective, and privately chosen.Today, Nexus has thousands of members from 70 countries around the world.A Lebanese national of Armenian descent, Zovighian was partly raised in Lebanon.Though Zovighian has pioneered the initiative, detailing its mandate, selecting membership and pledging initial funding, she has had the support of other Lebanese Nexus members, who also see the significance of beginning in Lebanon, with Beirut as its headquarters.
