Bahrain’s growing network of startup ecosystems is expanding with its recent partnership with Turkey’s Istanbul Development Agency. We are very excited about the possibilities that this partnership will bring between the two booming startup ecosystems. The partnership can facilitate stronger cooperation, shared resources, mentors, or co-working spaces. Think of all the possibilities! 

As part of the growing partnership between Bahrain and Turkey, we are excited to announce that Bahrain will be hosting Turkish startups in Bahrain. Around 15 startups will visit Bahrain later this month to take part in an all-inclusive tour of the startup ecosystem in Bahrain. 

The Turkish startups will be shown around the beloved Kingdom, meeting Bahraini startups, investors, and mentors. They will also be introduced to the different ecosystem players in Bahrain such as accelerators, incubators, government support, co-working spaces, and more. 

Although we won’t be able to list all 15 startups that will be visiting Bahrain, we want to give you a glimpse of some of the Turkish startups that will take part in the tour:

  • AppCent: A mobile application development platform for retailers, e-commerce companies, chain restaurants, and organizations. The startup offers companies mobile marketing, banners, product listing, payment integrations, and more!
  • AutoTrainBrain: This is a mobile application that serves children with dyslexia. It offers exercise and training content to improve the cognitive and learning skills of children with the learning disorder. 
  • Whole Surplus: On a mission to reduce food waste within Turkey and the region, Whole Surplus manages food waste by working with major supermarkets to deliver consumable food to food banks. Whole Surplus works with supermarkets such as Carrefour, Migros, and Metro in Turkey. They’ve also expanded to Italy, Hungary, and Germany.
  • Reminis: An app dedicated to savoring your memories, Reminis stores your photos based on location so that you can easily scout them later on. The app uses artificial intelligence and face recognition technologies to reach your memories, anywhere and anytime. 

Although we’ve only mentioned some of the startups coming to Bahrain, there are many more that we are excited to host. We hope that this tour will give both Turkish and Bahraini startups a chance to learn from each other, and benefit them in ways they couldn’t have imagined.
