Mashable has compiled a list of 25 startup companies at unlikely places around the world and a Lebanese startup called Transterra Media came in on the list at #23.

According to their website (link), the startup aims at redefining the way news is communicated by providing outlets with pictures and material straight out of from the scene.

I don’t know why Mashable considers Lebanon an unlikely place for such a news-centric startup to flourish. If anything, isn’t reporting news from where everything happens the best way to make a dent and cause a ripple? And in more general terms, haven’t many Lebanese startups also managed to become successful?

Either way, congrats to the people running Transterra Media for the recognition. Hopefully other local startups get noticed on a global scale as well soon.
