Mike Butcher, Editor at Large, TechCrunch said “We are looking forward to bringing TechCrunch Startup Battlefield to Beirut for our first event in the Middle East and North Africa. The startup and tech scene in the region is moving incredibly quickly and we are excited that Startup Battlefield might just find the world’s next unicorns.”
