Media & Money Unconference (AltCity, Beirut)

How can media startups in Lebanon benefit from new trends and opportunities to monetize content and develop revenue streams? How can we crack the nut of e-commerce and web & mobile payment systems? From content creators to developers, entrepreneurs to digital artists, how can we support new media innovation in Lebanon, and more competitive media startups?


  • Wais Bashir, Chief Editor/Editorial News Manager, Demotix 
  • Nina Curley, Editor-in-Chief, Wamda
  • Omar Christidis, CEO & Founder, ArabNet  
  • Marc Dfouni, CEO/Managing Partner, Eastline Marketing 
  • Moderated by Munir Nabti, CEO/Co-Founder, AltCity 

This gathering will bring people together who are working on CREATING media content, tools, sites, apps, and more, and those who aspire to do that. Come share your ideas, teach, learn, connect, collaborate, and have fun! 

BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees. It is part of the unconference movement.
