Startup MENA Takes Over Bahrain With the GCC Pitch Challenge

Startup MENA is inviting tech startups from the GCC to apply for the GCC Pitch Challenge, currently scanning for promising tech entrepreneurs in Bahrain, where applications close on February 12.

The Challenge is an exclusive series of pitch events where 10 startups from Bahrain as well as Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and UAE get the chance to pitch their ideas and receive pitching mentoring to participate at the finals next April in Dubai and gain international exposure.

“We are getting ready to launch regional pitch challenge events in Kuwait, Bahrain and UAE as deadlines are on Thursday. We will also host our GearUP sessions starting next week in those three countries, so we are on a mad startup dash and reaching out to as many aspiring and current entrepreneurs to join the sessions, where we are flying in our wickedly awesome international coach Jordan Schlipf,” says Startup MENA’s Veronica Murguia.
