Blitz Project​

University of Balamand students' startup Blitz was one of the projects chosen by Speed@BDD, a Beirut based tech startup accelerator that strives for the creation of an elite community for top-notch startups in Lebanon. Blitz founders are 4 Balamand students:  Charbel Chidiac and Amir Mirza who are in charge of handling the business side of the startup, and  Mazen Al-Wafai and Edward Zerbe , who are Computer Science graduates who were the main developers of Blitz.​

The goal of Blitz  is to bring out the creative side of Gamers, by providing them with a platform where they can create any challenge that comes to mind in any game, and breaking free from the fixed achievement system provided by the game itself.

Blitz is a mobile application that provides a social platform and community for Gamers, giving the ability to create, contribute to and compete in Crowdfunded challenges.

Speed@BDD  accepts startups at the idea and early stage, and is tasked with producing the region’s next high-growth businesses, particularly in the software, digital, and Web/mobile industries. Speed@BDD is a collaborative effort between Lebanon’s leading investment funds and entrepreneurship support organizations: Berytech Fund II, Middle East Venture Partners (MEVP), IM Capital, Lebanon for Entrepreneurs (LFE) and Bader.

On January 13,  six startups pitched their businesses and showcased their products after completing the 3-month acceleration program at Speed@BDD, among them Blitz startup.

Blitz now is looking to raise a second round of investment to be able to grow more as a company and add more features as well as users to the platform. 

Currently Blitz is developing a web application version for PC Gamers with plans to develop the same for console Gamers later on.

We wish them all the luck!
