Beban, Bahrain’s first entrepreneurship-themed reality show produced by Hope Ventures, the investment arm of Hope Fund, concluded the first phase of its two-week bootcamp for the 100 shortlisted entrepreneurs of more than 200 submitted applications for season 2.
Phase one was highly competitive and witnessed the 100 entrepreneurs compete in showcasing the essence of their promising businesses and their unique personalities to get shortlisted and be part of the 50 finalists who advance for phase two. Following being shortlisted to phase two, entrepreneurs will also progress to pitch on the second season of Beban for equity investment and unique strategic business development opportunities.
Beban 2 is also introducing an exciting new segment called ‘Beban auditions.’ Much like its namesake, the auditions will feature a certain number of Beban’s entrepreneurs as they pitch their businesses before a panel of judges comprised of various entrepreneurship sector experts to evaluate their businesses and provide them with constructive criticism to develop their businesses for the grand opportunity of pitching on the show.
It is worth noting that the auditions will be available for viewing on Beban’s YouTube channel under the same name. Once the entrepreneurs pass the auditions, the second phase of the bootcamp will kickstart on July 3rd and continue until September 1st.
