The Libya Startup project is to train entrepreneurship mentors and trainers at Gharian University’s Business Incubator. Last week Gharian University Incubator launched a competition for interested faculty members to apply.
A delegation from implementers Supernova and Bina Business Incubator also visited Gharian University Incubator last week, within the framework of the “Libya Startup” project’s agreement with the university. This follows on from Bina’s visit to the university in January to assess what it needs to launch the project.
Within that agreement, the incubator building is currently being re-equipped to receive young entrepreneurs in the university and the Western Mountain region to be trained and mentored to develop their projects and facilitate their access to financing.
Ghada Arhouma, Director of Bina Incubator – Libya, confirmed to Libya Herald that a competition has been organized within the university, in which participants will receive 60 training hours on how to guide, direct and follow up entrepreneurs.

Moreover, she revealed that distinguished graduates would have the opportunity to provide training, follow-up and guidance to entrepreneurs with the Gharian University Incubator, in addition to the opportunity to network with project mentors and entrepreneurs at the Bina Organization for Sustainable Development, and to get acquainted with a network of interested people in the field.
