If you’re ready for something new, you’re ready for Startup Minute.

Entrepreneurial culture media and technology company focused on the digital generation.

Entrepreneurial what now?

Entrepreneurial media network aiming to build a global video community powered by passion and serve as a Launchpad for people to get started.

Why it matters

The secret to getting ahead is getting started.

What makes us so entrepreneurial

Well.. we started with an idea for producing a series of videos interviewing entrepreneurs on how they got started. And now this:

Startup Minute logo

We're on a mission to build the next video-sharing social network and ultimately serve as the initial platform on the web to help people get started.

Crazy, right?


Yeah, we thought so too!


Well, we envision the future of Startup Minute becoming a group of companies: production, originals, news, network, academy…

You know what’s crazy also?

  • Being uninspired, unmotivated, and unaware while being unemployed

  • Having great talent and potentials yet remaining untapped, unnoticed, and unseen

  • Being unable to easily find localized timely quality video content delivered by reliable real experts and entrepreneurs in your field and industry

  • Getting used to waiting for global platforms to emerge while finding it crazy to build the next video-sharing platform and ride it all the way to the top

  • Trying to get started on FB, YT, IG and finding out that..

  • Silly dance videos are taking over the web

You know what’s cool?

  • You are, for reading this

  • Entrepreneurship, lifelong learning, collaboration, knowledge-sharing, growth

  • Connecting more deeply and emotionally with those you seek to influence

  • Sharing relatable moments with people who get what you do

  • Providing mentorship, advice, and empathy to help others reach their career goals

  • Reviewing and sharing tips about your favorite products and technologies

You know what’s really cool?

  • You still are

  • Conscious entrepreneurship

  • Resourcefulness, persistence, perseverance

  • Getting comfortable with video now while it’s still differentiating

  • Realizing that Startup Minute can serve a higher purpose

  • Spreading the entrepreneurial culture through News and Spotlights

  • Starting from the end and actually getting people and organizations from across the globe interested in joining our yet-to-be video-sharing entrepreneurial network

You know what’s exciting?

  • Video is one of the most powerful forms of communications for relationship building

  • Two key workplace trends are creating the perfect environment for you to make video your most prominent form of business communication: remote work and oversaturation of text-based communications

  • Being an influencer or online content creator is one of the most sought-after careers today, but it’s getting increasingly difficult to rise to prominence on incumbent platforms.

  • As YouTube and Instagram have scaled, it’s tough to stand out in the sea of aspiring influencers, particularly when their algorithms direct users to creators that already have large audiences.

  • We believe video will ultimately replace email and texting as a more powerful and valuable medium. By 2022, online videos will make up more than 82% of all consumer internet traffic — 15 times higher than it was in 2017.

You know what’s really exciting?

  • Creating a video-sharing platform that enables people to accelerate learning, build authority in their fields, and unlock features to grow their network, influence, and income

  • Identifying the one thing for which you want to be known to create effective personal branding, stand out from the noise, and be recognized and remembered

  • Allowing people to easily apply to jobs through short videos and saving HR time and resources in the hiring process by allowing them to check their channels for further insights into their work, interests, and personalities

  • Joining us on this journey to help inform, educate, inspire, and empower more young people across Lebanon and beyond
