BMMI was recently recognised for its support of the Manama Entrepreneurship Week!
The week, which took place from May 7 to May 14, was an excellent platform for collaboration, learning, networking and inspiring young entrepreneurs.
BMMI was proud to have supported this event, which included workshops, seminars, networking sessions and panel discussions. Young professional entrepreneurs in the industry were able to answer questions and share their success stories with all the participants. Attendees were able to develop an understanding of what is required for establishing and improving successful business endeavours, and how to remain motivated, inspired and empowered to pursue their goals.
“It was an honour for BMMI to actively support and successfully contribute towards the first 'Manama Entrepreneurship and Youth Empowerment Week', which we believe to be an important and enriching initiative,” said Yasmin Hussain, Brand, Communications & CSR Manager. “With our continuing support of youth focused initiatives and educational institutions, as well as our own internal Young Leaders Program that focuses on training new graduates, we are committed to supporting Bahrain’s youth and fostering an environment where entrepreneurial minds can thrive. The social and economic benefits that stem from supporting such initiatives are truly invaluable. We hope that such endeavours are continuously developed in the Kingdom and that we can continue to positively contribute to supporting youth and promising entrepreneurial minds.”
Our very own Corporate Communications & CSR Supervisor, Mohamed Algarf, attended the opening ceremony at the Diplomat Radisson Blu Hotel where he was called up on stage to receive an award on behalf of BMMI, for our contribution towards fuelling these young entrepreneurs.
Reem Al Tajer, our CSR trainee, was one of the participants in attendance and was definitely glad she had chosen to join. “I decided to attend the Manama Entrepreneurship and Youth Empowerment Week because I was particularly interested in gaining insights from the main speaker, Mohammed Jaffar, the Ex-CEO of Talabat.com,” she said. “I have been quite fascinated by the rise of e-commerce and tech entrepreneurship in the past few years. As a young Bahraini, I also think it is absolutely crucial to participate in events targeted towards the empowerment of developing professionals. There are numerous platforms in the country that aid budding entrepreneurs, however, it is up to potential entrepreneurs to take advantage of such possibilities in order to be true innovators and drive sustainable economic development.”
