Unbound Bahrain, a two-day festival to celebrate the most innovative start-ups in the GCC region, will be taking place in Bahrain on March 7 and 8 at the Bahrain International Circuit.
The festival is being organised by ‘unbound’, which specialises in global innovation events, and is being held in association with the Bahrain Economic Development Board (EDB) and supported by StartUp Bahrain.
It will be part of Startup Bahrain week and is expected to attract 1,000 regional entrepreneurs, who will have the opportunity to meet with leading innovators and explore over 100 emerging technologies, products and services from across the region.
The festival will bring together 50 influential speakers from fintech, adtech, travel, e-commerce and more, for two days of panels and keynote speeches. Sessions will highlight the latest trends supporting the transition to a digital economy, as well as the creation of a supportive environment for innovation and e-commerce in the Gulf, the role that governments play in innovation, reaching the connected consumer and the future of finance. It will also feature a Female Founders Startup Challenge, startup-investor pitching, exhibitions and hackathons.
“Having helped fuel innovation ecosystems around the world over the past five years, I recognise the opportunity for growth of the knowledge economy of the Gulf and believe the Kingdom to be an important strategic gateway for the region,” says Daniel Seal, founder and CEO of unbound (pictured).
