Tamkeen Continues to Support Bahrain’s Entrepreneurs

Tamkeen Continues to Support Bahrain’s Entrepreneurs in Partnership with Mowgli

As part of its commitment to support entrepreneurs in the Kingdom of Bahrain, Tamkeen, in partnership with Mowgli Foundation, continues to ensure the success of the Entrepreneurial Mentoring Programme in its experimental edition.

The Tamkeen-Mowgli Jam activity, held on Saturday, October 22, 2016, reviewed project development phases, evaluated performance and work, and examined progress achieved between mentors and mentees, in the first half of the programme. It also envisioned future plans in the next stage.

Mentors are impressed with the improvement in their communication skills professionally and personally. Entrepreneurs also developed in their analytical, time and financial management skills.

In the first half of the programme, Mowgli reported an 80% rate of success in building mentoring relations. This was due to Tamkeen’s support and commitment of mentors and entrepreneurs to the outputs of the four-day training workshops, which started in April this year. At the training courses, 15 mentors and 15 Bahraini entrepreneurs were matched in a bid to develop the skills of those mentees, drawing on Mowgli’s experience in the field.
