Coinciding with the 2015-2016 academic year and as part of its efforts to support youth and prepare them for the labor market, Tamkeen has recently opened the registration for the third edition of “Mashroo3i” Youth Business Awards, which aims to instill the spirit of entrepreneurship amongst Bahraini youth.
Selected teams will formulate and prepare business plans of their innovative products and services throughout a number of phases, which will culminate with a public exhibition displaying the best business ideas in one of the active shopping malls in the Kingdom. Following an evaluation process of all submitted business plans by a jury of experienced entrepreneurs, the “Mashroo3i” award will be granted to the winning team, which include career-building opportunities, such as local and international internship, in addition to financial and non-financial support from Tamkeen.
The competition targets Bahraini youth aged between 15 and 26 who have a passion in entrepreneurship, with the aim of unleashing their ideas and transforming them into real products and businesses that will contribute to the development and growth of the Kingdom’s economy.
Commenting on the announcement, Tamkeen Chief Operating Officer Ms. Amal Al Kooheji said: “Tamkeen seeks to support Bahrainis throughout all their development stages. As part of this, “Mashroo3i” Youth Business Awards is considered one of Tamkeen’s initiatives targeting the youth as they are going through a sensitive transitional period of their lives that will determine their future careers.
