The second phase of the youth entrepreneurship reality TV show “Al-Mohema” (The Mission) ended in Bahrain with 90 young participants getting shortlisted fot the next round.
Al-Mohema, a joint initiative between Bahrain labour fund Tamkeen and the Information Affairs Authority (IAA), seeks to hone Bahrainis’ skills and promote the entrepreneurial spirit amongst Bahraini youth, said the organisers.

The applicants were then shortlisted to 90 contestants who will attend a number of business training workshops and lectures on entrepreneurship and setting up a business. A series of lectures and training workshops will be presented to the contestants at the Bahrain Credit Media Center at the University of Bahrain.
Following that, the 90 contestants will be further shortlisted to 14 finalists who will compete for the grand prize in the final stage, which involves unique challenges through which the finalists will prove their abilities in coming up with business solutions.
The final stage will be broadcast on Bahrain TV, giving viewers a unique opportunity to follow the finalists as they go about completing their tasks.
The overall winner, determined by a panel of leading judges, will receive a grand prize of BD10,000 ($26,383) to help establish his or her own business, and will have the opportunity to benefit from Tamkeen's business development and support programmes.-TradeArabia News Service
