INJAZ Bahrain, in cooperation with AlMabarrah AlKhalifia Foundation (MKF), has launched a one-day “Innovation camp” workshop at Bahrain Petroleum Company – Bapco. The workshop attended by both students and graduates, aimed to encourage students to foster an understanding of entrepreneurship by creating innovative solutions to challenges from the real business world.
Designed to fit the needs of students in preparing them for business challenges, the workshop tested the students on a variety of skills including: leadership, analytical thinking and presentation skills in addition to learning how to start a business.
Students divided into teams, participated in a set of educational activities and recreational games as well as business challenges for which they had to find creative solutions given a specific time frame and limited resources.
The workshop laid emphasis on developing students’ personal skills, as well as acquiring new skills, including problem solving and working within a defined time frame.
Mrs. Saba Seyadi, Executive Director of AlMabarrah Alkhalifia Foundation commented “We are very proud of any initiatives that encourage students to take a more creative approach in all aspects of their lives and to gain entrepreneurial skills. That is why we would like to extend our appreciation to INJAZ Bahrain for organizing this workshop. We also look forward to collaborating with other organisations to launch initiatives that benefit Bahrain’s youth.
In addition, Ms. Hana Sarwani, INJAZ Bahrain’s Executive Director said: “At INJAZ Bahrain, we are preparing students to enter the labor market, through providing them with the skills and tools that contribute to instill their entrepreneurial spirit,”. She added “We are very excited to be partnering with AlMabarrah Alkhalifia Foundation on this unique event and we would like to express our gratitude for their continued support of our programs and their belief in the vision of INJAZ Bahrain.”
The ICamp workshop comes in line with MKF’s efforts to build a fruitful partnership with INJAZ Bahrain, providing training and growth opportunities for AlMabarrah AlKhalifia students.
