StartUp Bahrain is a community initiative that brings together entrepreneurs, corporates, investors, incubators, educational institutions, and the Bahrain Government, to promote startup culture in Bahrain.

Whatever your sector or stage of development, our mission is to create an environment where young businesses can flourish and take advantage of the rapidly evolving Gulf marketplace.

So far, our successes include a brand new FinTech Sandbox and a host of new incubators and accelerators established. But that’s just the beginning. Crowd-funding regulation, new bankruptcy laws and new funding schemes are all just around the corner.

So why not join us and become part of the region’s most exciting
startup community


There was a guy who had this idea. It was brilliant (but no, he’s not going to tell you what it is. Not that he thinks you’ll steal it, but you can’t be too careful). He knew that with energy and elbow grease, it would work. He just needed the right place…

…somewhere that gave him the right blend of clever people and smart technology. He discovered it in Bahrain. He found an incubator that gave him a great space (and connected him to some great people) and an accelerator that injected some welcome capital…

…and he found himself living on a beautiful island which met his needs beautifully. The people were tech smart and worldly -perfect to beta-test his brainwave. And Bahrain was perfectly placed to reach out to the big, big gulf market. He loved everything about it…


…especially how business-friendly it was. Yes, his startup took off and he lived happily ever after….Well, until his next brilliant idea.
