The Middle East has seen its fair share of VR-related ventures in recent years — some of them already making their presence felt in the global arena by providing innovative solutions to real-life problems. Case in point: Munfarid Consulting, a Bahrain-based VR startup that specializes in the implementation frameworks and consultancy in AR/VR/AI for corporate, non-corporate, and government entities.

Munfarid recently inked a deal with the Bahrain Technology Companies Society (BTECH) to become a full-member organization of the industry body and expand the scope for mutual cooperation.

BTECH was founded to improve, enhance, and build upon Bahrain’s economic strengths and to facilitate an ideal platform for ICT entrepreneurs to grow and compete on the global stage.

Munfarid has been at the forefront of many government initiatives and has received much appreciation and encouragement for their dynamic efforts and unique offering at a number of platforms such as Worldskills Competition 2017, Bahrain Entrepreneurship Week, Education Experts Conference, Edutech Middle East 2017, to name a few. Sharing a common vision to maximize the scope of immersive technologies in education and training in the Middle East, Munfarid and Google Expeditions have been putting in joint efforts since March 2017, and next year they are going bigger with the VRXOne go-to-school program aimed at running a million Expeditions revolutionizing the school education in the Middle East.

“Confident that the BTECH affiliation will add to Munfarid’s growing reputation and bring more recognition for the company” said Dr. Sana Farid during the accord signing ceremony. “Munfarid has huge plans to contribute to the technological front of the country with its AR/VR/Ai aided training programs designed to enhance the learning capabilities of the youth both in educational and corporate sectors as well as further help to align strategies for technology aided, performance enhancement solutions for both government and non-government organizations” expressed Mr. Ubaydli the chairman of Bahrain Technology Companies Society.
