Manama: Tamkeen has partnered with Mowgli Foundation to launch an entrepreneurial mentoring programme to support Bahraini entrepreneurs, starting Saturday.
The four-day workshop will mark the beginning of a pioneering Tamkeen programme, currently in its pilot stage, which has been accredited by the European Mentoring and Coaching Council.
It will provide entrepreneurs with access to business and life mentorship for an entire year to give them significantly increased chances of succeeding in their entrepreneurial journeys.
The programme aims to support local entrepreneurs and strengthen their leadership capabilities in addition to maximising the potential of their businesses to expand regionally, ultimately creating jobs and contributing to Bahrain’s economic growth.
“Tamkeen works continuously to support Bahrainis throughout all stages of development. As part of this, it is important to provide Bahraini businesses with advisory and consultancy to ensure they achieve further growth,” said Tamkeen chief executive Dr Ibrahim Janahi.
“We are proud to partner with Mowgli, one of the leading entrepreneurial mentoring organisations in the region, to train and develop mentors who will provide effective and holistic support to promising Bahraini entrepreneurs,” he added.
“We are looking forward to working with Tamkeen on this programme and bringing our programme to Bahrain, as we share the same objectives of supporting the regional and international growth of Bahraini entrepreneurs as well as developing the Bahraini entrepreneurship ecosystem for future generations,” Mowgli chief executive Kathleen Bury said.
