Ibrahim graduated from the American University in Beirut (AUB) with a Master in Business Consulting. He came out with the fantastic idea of creating an ‘innovation factory’ where one can work, access machinery and produce anything or any idea of any sort. Meet Ibrahim, and find out how the EU helped him translate his dream into success, in the latest EU Neighbours South video, showing how the EU invests in young and innovative minds to build a brighter future in the Mediterranean.

Ibrahim co-founded the “Innovation factory” in Beirut, thanks to MedGeneration, an EU project mobilising diaspora talents to support local entrepreneurs in creating start-ups.

The video is the sixth of nine interviews presenting the testimonies of young people in the Southern Mediterranean who have benefited from EU projects.

The videos are released on the EU Neighbours South Facebook page, or can be seen on the project’s YouTube channel.

They are part of the #EU4YOUTH social media driven campaign (Facebook, Twitter) aimed at raising awareness of EU-funded youth initiatives in the EU Southern Neighbourhood countries: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia. The campaign targets one million young people in the age group 18-35 in the EU Southern Neighbourhood countries.
