Hope Ventures, the investment arm of Hope Fund, has announced accepting applications for the third season of “Biban”, a first-of-its-kind entrepreneurial TV show in Bahrain.
Biban provides entrepreneurs with the opportunity to present promising investment opportunities to a panel of local and regional investors.
In the first and second seasons, the programme succeeded in facilitating joint investment between the public and private sectors exceeding $6 million.
The second season, telecast on the Shahid platform, Bahrain TV, Al Rai TV and Dubai TV, included new additions, such as the expansion to the United Arab Emirates.
This season also witnessed the launch of the Biban crowdfunding platform, providing access to a wider network of investors and investment in exchange for shares in companies.
Fajr Saleh Al-Pachachi, General Manager of Hope Projects, said: “The projects will go through an evaluation process consisting of 5 stages, starting with the screening stage, followed by an evaluation by experts and specialists in the business sectors.
The project owners will, who are selected, then join an intensive training programme during the second quarter of this year.
This stage will witness the final line-up of projects and filming of the programme.”
Applications are now open for all entrepreneurs through www.HopeFund.bh. Applicants can reach out to the Hope Ventures team on their social channels or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org for further support and guidance.
