Tamkeen announces the launch of the fifth edition of the “Mashroo3i” youth award for the year 2018, which focuses on nurturing and motivating young Bahraini innovators into a world of entrepreneurship. Mashroo3i aims at providing young talented individuals the right tools and resources to bring their ideas to life and develop their entrepreneurial skills.
Tamkeen’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Ebrahim Mohammed Janahi stressed on the importance of enhancing sustainable opportunities in the startup ecosystem begins by spreading awareness of the creative culture among young individuals and boosting leading experiences through improving the skills of young people.
Dr. Ebrahim Mohammed Janahi pointed out that Mashroo3i has achieved tangible success in spreading the culture of entrepreneurship among young people and expand their career options beyond the school stage, and to expose them to incredible opportunities that will ultimately, aid in the implementation of their business idea.
The startup ecosystem plays an important role in driving towards the sustainability of economic development.
The competition targets young Bahrainis aged between 18 and 30 who have the ambition and desire to enter the world of entrepreneurship.
A panel of experts will judge and evaluate the business ideas presented by the participating teams and shortlist them to the next phase of the competition.
The selected teams then prepare their business plans under the guidance of a Bahraini entrepreneur and then develop the prototype for the final exhibition to be held in one of the Kingdom’s commercial malls.
The ideas presented during the final phase of Mashroo3i will be judged by a panel of experts, as well as the public attending can vote for their favorite business concept!
The results of the three winning teams will be announced as the winners of “Mashroo3i” at a closing ceremony where they will receive professional support opportunities, such as local or international training as well as funding support provided by Tamkeen.
If you are between the age 18 – 30 and want to bring your idea to life go ahead and register at www.tamkeen.bh/mashroo3i. Be mindful! The deadline for the registration is on the 7th of June, 2018.
