Seedstars MENA is coming to Bahrain to organize the closing event of its Middle East and North Africa tour with the MENA Summit on December 14th, 2017. For the second year in a row, the event will be organized in partnership with CH9, where it will gather all the local winners of the region along with 350+ registered attendees, including regional investors, mentors, entrepreneurs and corporates. The event is organized with the support of the Bahrain Economic Development Board and Startup Bahrain, the U.S. Embassy in Bahrain and Tamkeen.
Dr. Simon Galpin, Managing Director of the Economic Development Board (EDB), said: “Rapid development in the region’s ICT sector is encouraging growth in the GCC’s digital economies and creating an environment which supports and enables technology-related entrepreneurship. The GCC must capitalise on this momentum and help tech-focused entrepreneurs to develop their ideas. We are constantly looking for ways to improve the startup ecosystem that we have here in Bahrain, which offers an ideal base for startups from all over the region to test out their new products and services. As well as a supportive business environment and strong ICT infrastructure, recent initiatives are making it easier for entrepreneurs to innovate- the introduction of a regulatory sandbox for fintech companies and the launch of Bahrain Fintech Bay are but two examples. Events such as Seedstars MENA Summit play a key role in encouraging innovation across the region. We are delighted to be supporting the Summit and we look forward to seeing its positive impact on startups and entrepreneurs.”
“This event is a fantastic opportunity for everyone from the region to come together in Bahrain and build bridges between the ecosystems”, Maryam Alsaegh, Executive Director of CH9 explains, “We look forward to hosting Seedstars MENA Summit at CH9 on December 14th, and help entrepreneurs to skyrocket their growth”.
