Bahrain’s focus on shaping a regional hub for entrepreneurs as part of its ongoing efforts to meet key goals within the Economic Vision 2030 comes under the spotlight next month when it hosts StartUp Bahrain Week, a series of networking events for entrepreneurs, investors and businesses.
Running between March 3–7, the regional startup community will be able to enjoy a platform of events to network and learn about the startup ecosystem that has been created by Bahrain.
Khalid Al-Rumaihi, chief executive of the Bahrain Economic Development Board, said: “StartUp Bahrain Week promises to be a week of inspirational events for entrepreneurs and investors that will encourage innovation and growth in the startup ecosystem. Currently, the regulatory climate we have cultivated, in recent years, has provided a solid foundation for the startup community. We look forward to sharing knowledge, great ideas and most importantly the opportunities available in Bahrain.”
Dr. Ibrahim Janahi, chief executive officer of Tamkeen, said: “Tamkeen is delighted to once again be a strategic partner of StartUp Bahrain Week. It underlines our commitment to helping promising talent develop the right skills for the knowledge economy. These are skills that we need to encourage and develop within Bahrain and across the region.”
