Hope Ventures, the investment arm of Hope Fund, has partnered with INJAZ Bahrain to launch an empowering initiative called ‘Beban Al-Shabab.’ This exciting segment is a part of the renowned entrepreneurship-themed reality TV show ‘Beban‘ and aims to inspire Bahraini youth to embark on their entrepreneurial journeys.

‘Beban Al-Shabab’ provides a platform for talented young entrepreneurs aged 6 to 17 years old to pitch their business ideas to a distinguished panel of judges. This offers them invaluable business opportunities and sets them on a path toward success. Prior to the pitching stage, participants receive comprehensive training to refine their business models and enhance their presentation skills, preparing them for potential investments and strategic partnerships.

Applications are now open for Bahraini youth between the ages of 6 and 17, who have either a business idea or an existing venture. Fluency in Arabic or English is required for pitching.

“At Hope, we carry the firmest belief in the potential of Bahraini youth and their entrepreneurial capabilities, which is why we created Beban Al-Shabab in partnership with INJAZ Bahrain to showcase 12 promising youth businesses who will pitch to a panel of judges to unlock doors of opportunities to grow their business concepts. We look forward to paving the way to the next generation of promising Bahraini entrepreneurs.” Expressed H.E. Aymen bin Tawfiq Almoayed, Chairman of Hope Fund. 

“Through our joint efforts, we aim to foster a culture of innovation and creativity among the youth and prepare them for the challenges and opportunities of the 21st-century economy. INJAZ Bahrain has been supporting youth entrepreneurship education for over 15 years, and we are proud to see how our youth will showcase their talents and ideas on Beban Al-Shabab. We encourage all young Bahrainis with a passion for entrepreneurship to apply for this exciting opportunity and benefit from the mentorship and guidance of Hope Ventures and INJAZ Bahrain.” Said H.H. Sheikha Hessa bint Khalifa Al Khalifa, Chairperson at INJAZ Bahrain.
