We invest in High potential, motivated and dedicated Bahraini founders and employees, innovative, new for the region and scalable to expand outside of Bahrain. It helps if you've done some research into potential customers, suppliers, costs etc. - most of these you can do with a phone call or a meeting. Most succesful startps change their idea substantially, so we can help you develop your concept
Your team is what matters the most to us. We're looking for a dedicated team.
- We look for honesty, determination, brains, motivation and a sense of design anda will to succeed against all odds. Experience is helpful but not critical.The ideal company would have a team of 2-4 people. We'll consider those with 4 or 5.
- If you are just one person, we would suggest you look for a partner first, or apply and keep in mind you will need to get someone else on board very wuickly after you receive your funding. A startup is too difficult to do completely on your own.
- We're looking for companies that can really do something substantial in the first 3 months after they've started. We want you to grow outside of Bahrain and be ambitious.
What are we NOT looking for?
- Real-estate projects
- Incredibly capital intensive projects
- Regular ideas in a very competitive market
