4 min readNov 4, 2019

The BigBooster Acceleration Program organised, from 14 to 17 October 2019 in Lyon, the fourth season of the Booster Camp, an international event open to start-ups to allow them to internationalise their activities by giving them the keys to “think global”.

Member of the THE NEXT SOCIETY community, BigBooster is one of the international acceleration bootcamps offered to Start-up Booster Track beneficiaries, which aims to help entrepreneurs in the MENA region access key markets: Europe, Africa, Gulf States and the United States.

During this international meeting, 19 THE NEXT SOCIETY start-ups from the 7 countries covered by the initiative (Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, and Tunisia) benefited from the three days of coaching, mentoring, networking, training and workshops at the Booster Camp.

They were able to benefit from the diversity of activities and the advice of the experts and mentors present to provide them with support. This rich participation has once again resulted in a high quality Booster Camp for this fourth season.

Target: Boston and the US market

At the end of the BigBooster Booster Camp, 20 start-ups were selected to experience the learning expedition in Boston in January 2020. In partnership with the City of Boston, Mass Challenge and French Tech Boston, they will participate in the Grand Final of the Top 20 on March 5, 2020, during which the nominated start-ups will present their final pitch in front of investors.

THE NEXT SOCIETY is proud to have 7 start-ups from its initiative rewarded for their innovation and advancement. We wish them all the best for the rest of their adventure!
