The MIT Enterprise Forum Pan Arab is back with the 5th edition of the Silicon Valley Program, where MENA-based startups head to Silicon Valley for a week to get introduced to the valley tech ecosystems. 

For those unfamiliar, the Silicon Valley Program is an immersive program for MENA-based startups, where they will exhibit their startups to a global audience of investors, entrepreneurs, and accelerators during Techcrunch Disrupt SF, and will be doing site visits to the world’s largest tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Salesforce. 

This year’s Bahraini startups are sponsored by Tamkeen Bahrain, coming from different industries, and have developed innovative solutions to real-world problems.
