Picture this: You’re a Bahraini entrepreneur, you have an established business that’s ready to take off beyond borders and expand regionally, you’re creative and open to exploring that creativity even further; all that you’re missing is an opportunity to shake things up for you.
Consider that opportunity offered, as Hope Ventures, the investment arm of Hope Fund, has opened registration for season 2 of its hit entrepreneurial-themed show Beban! We’re giving you 5 reasons why you should totally tap the ‘apply’ button and go for it.
- Access to Funding
Being accepted to be on the show automatically means you’re going to pitch your business idea to a panel of investors, get the chance to make it a home run, and bag an immediate investment. During the first season, a USD of 1,000,000 in investment was made. Speaking of season one, you can still check out all its episodes on Shahid free of charge!
- Regional Exposure
Naturally, being on a broadcast show gives you the advantage of having, as 2Pac would say, all eyes on you and your business. What business wouldn’t want that regional level of visibility?
If being on-camera is something new to you, you’d be happy to know that you’ll be well cared for as you’ll be prepared in advance by top industry experts as part of Hope Ventures’ bootcamp for Beban. Think of all the mentorship that’ll help you refine your business even before you’re on the show. Tempting, right?
- Valuable Perks
Everyone is a winner on Beban, even if you don’t receive an investment that works for you; you’re eligible for some of the coolest perks a business like yours could get; some of season one’s perks included a trip to China with Huawei.
You probably fed your curiosity and watched at least clips of season one by this point. You can already tell that the mentorship you’ll be receiving will scale your business in areas you haven’t even thought about with the help of Beban’s strategic investors.
If it sounds like the opportunity of a lifetime, that’s because it is! Don’t miss out on the chance of applying, and visit the link here by April 30th.
