We took the feedback from all our expert judges and chose five teams to compete in the finals. Then after another round of pitches and Q&A, our finals judges selected a winner and a runner-up.

The winner of the Startup Battlefield MENA is taking home $25,000 (equity-free) and has also won a trip to Disrupt San Francisco 2019. Plus, both the winner and runner-up received some tasty Lebanese treats.
