Brinc, an “Internet of Things” accelerator, has announced the three startups to have been picked for the first cohort of its Connected Hardware Accelerator program in Bahrain.
The three startups are:
- Time Control Technologies: A technology startup that develops business software compatible with connected devices. The company aims to provide HR and management teams in the oil, gas, and construction sectors with hardware-enabled solutions to optimize efficiency and productivity.
- Nebdaa: An IoT startup committed to enhancing in-store shopping experience with the help of technology.
- Smart Nakheel: An agricultural technology startup that aims to solve major issues faced by date palm farmers.
The three startups will now receive a host of benefits from its association with Brinc, including seed investment for accelerated growth, mentorship, office at a co-working space, and a ready-to-go market for prototyping, just to name a few.
Brinc, one of the most active investors in the global hardware industry, signed a contract with Tamkeen earlier this month to conduct the region’s first accelerator program for connected hardware startups.
“Of all the tech accelerators in the region, Brinc is the only one that can support founders with manufacturing of connected hardware. We’re bringing product development knowledge from China to set off a new wave of innovation in Bahrain, creating IoT companies that have the potential to transform the world around us,” Yasin Aboudaoud, Chief Development Officer of Brinc and Director of Brinc MENA, said shortly after signing the contract.
