37 join ‘Falak Unreasonable Entrepreneur Weekend’

MANAMA, December 10, 2018

As many as 37 entrepreneurs from Bahrain participated in a two-day workshop titled ‘The Falak Unreasonable Weekend’, which aimed to give entrepreneurs access to valuable knowledge sharing and experience that are not within their reach.
 
The event, an extensive, “extreme leaning” entrepreneurship workshop, was held as part of the Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) activities. It was organised in collaboration between the Labour Fund “Tamkeen” and Falak Consulting at the Novotel resort.
 
The two-day workshop also aimed to further allow the entrepreneurs to get their ideas validated and gain insight into real-world issues and how to overcome them.
 
Falak Consulting founder and CEO and main speaker Suhail Algosaibi said: “As an entrepreneur who knows what it’s like to succeed and fail, I fully understand the struggle most entrepreneurs face during the different stages of their venture and the value of sharing experiences and learning from others who already walked the line.” 
 
He added: “Bahrain’s Economic Vision 2030 aims to foster entrepreneurship as a key factor in achieving economic growth and sustainable development, and it is our duty to support them and guide them as they debut their journey as key contributors to the kingdom’s economy.”
 
Tamkeen chief executive Dr Ebrahim Janahi said: “Entrepreneurs are always thought of as a national asset that significantly contributes to the growth and prosperity of our country’s economy.”
 
He added: “Our support for this event comes as part of Tamkeen’s celebration of the Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW), an event celebrated by more than 170 countries around the world.  Our celebration of this international event comes in line with our commitment to play our role in realising and achieving Bahrain’s Economic Vision 2030, and inspiring and influencing a young generation of Bahrainis to become successful entrepreneurs is one of our key objectives.”
 
The Falak Unreasonable Weekend featured an array of speakers including:
Suhail Algosaibi, an award-winning Bahraini serial entrepreneur, consultant, startup investor/mentor, innovation authority, TEDx speaker, and activist. Suhail has worked and consulted in several industries including petrochemicals, banking, health, fitness, martial arts, real estate and intellectual property. 
Maniza Dewan, a veteran consultant with in-depth experience in the areas of strategy and operations, who has been part of several global engagements across North America, Western Europe and Asia.
Jitender Shekhawat who has an extensive experience in developing strategies related to growth, market entry, and overall corporate operations as well as building governance frameworks to prepare organizations for growth.
 
Falak Consulting, in collaboration with Tamkeen, had hosted the second edition of ‘Falak Unreasonable Thinking Summit’ earlier this year. A two-day forum on innovation, disruption and out-of-the-box thinking, the summit aims to educate and inspire Bahrain’s business community, especially startups and entrepreneurs, and to show Bahrain in a positive light and help position it as a centre for creativity, innovation and excellence. – TradeArabia News Service
