Manama, Bahrain, 20 January 2018: Tenmou, Bahrain’s first ‘Business Angels company’ recently announced its partial exit from the mobile application “Eat”. The shares were acquired by FA Holding, a Bahrain-based holding company with a VC allocation, earning Tenmou a 20 X return on its initial investment following the application’s successful launch. Raising US$ 4.2 million to-date, successfully expanding from the Kingdom across the United Arab Emirates and greater GCC area to a total of 22 countries, the mobile app accommodates more than 2,400+ restaurants, and serving more than 5+ million diners.
This decision comes in line with Tenmou’s vision of revamping its investment model and reusing the exit amount to invest in new and upcoming start-ups across the Kingdom in the months to come. By focusing its modern facilities and dedicated funds towards continuing to drive the Company’s vision forward, thereby accelerating the growth of start-ups in order to positively impact the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Bahrain.
Chief Executive Officer of Tenmou, Mr. Nawaf Alkoheji, revealed, “We are proud to witness the growth of “Eat” having supported its development from the early seed stages up until the success story it is today, on the verge of becoming one of the leading providers of tech solutions in the F&B industry.”
The “Eat” application simplifies the traditional restaurant booking process for its users by providing them with convenience of reserving a table across a wide range of locations online; as well as offering restaurateurs and hoteliers the convenience of a digital booking management platform to optimise and manage reservations.
"We are currently seeking high potential, innovative and motivated Bahraini startups to support their growth; our efforts will remain focused on launching additional success stories, creating a truly collaborative environment and start up ecosystem within the Kingdom in pursuance of Tenmou’s commitment to contributing to the diversification sources of the national income in light of the Kingdom's Economic 2030 Vision,” he added
Nezar Kadhem, Founder of “Eat App” revealed, “I approached Tenmou back when Eat App was just an idea; looking back I couldn’t be prouder of how far we’ve come. With Tenmou’s support and investment, we successfully launched a global product that serves the community and puts Bahrain on the map and on the global food scene”
Tenmou has also successfully launched various other applications, including “Mala3eb”; an app that allows users to book football stadiums throughout the Kingdom of Bahrain and Saudi Arabia along with “Fish Transporter (Fish Me)” which delivers fresh fish to any location in Bahrain and many more.
Each project under the umbrella of Tenmou receives practical advice and coaching from experienced Board Members and investors in the form of regular workshops and training sessions, which aims to equip and mentor future entrepreneurs on best practices such as how to deal with difficult business scenarios.
