To us, Lebanon’s economic growth is tightly tied to its local entrepreneurs activity. That is why AM Bank has been a pioneer in supporting young ambitious people to finance their projects in the knowledge economy sector. We are particularly proud to have been the first bank to invest in a Lebanese startup under BDL intermediate circular 331.

Since then, we have launched YOUTHinc., an initiative that specifically boosts proactive entrepreneurs to start or grow their small and medium enterprises in the knowledge economy through a number of solutions and interventions, helping them grow and prosper locally and internationally.

Do you think you have a great idea that can be the next worldwide success story? Together, we can let your ideas take you to higher places. You think. We Invest.
