Unleash your creativity, be inspired & launch your own digital solution with #SCWomenInTech Incubation program & virtual challenge!

 

The world is currently facing unprecedented challenges as a result of COVID-19. Therefore, innovation and creativity are needed more than ever.

This program invites female entrepreneurs within the Kingdom of Bahrain to share their business ideas with the aim of establishing an online presence.

 

To enter the SC women in tech incubation program, you have to apply in either of these categories:

  • Existing Startups: If you have an existing startup, business plan or idea, you can submit as per the instructions below.

  • Individuals: Enter the 54 hour challenge, where you can work in teams and together develop innovative business ideas.

Top 10 winning teams will then be selected to go through an 8-week training program as part of the SC Women in tech incubation program. This will be followed by a pitch of each of the 10 ideas at the final week.​ The top 5 compelling ideas will receive prize money of USD 10,000/- each and a 3-month residency at Bahrain FinTech Bay as an incentive to pursue and accelerate their solutions.

Although this is aimed at female-led enterprises, men can also enter and apply to support with design and development. In the absence of a group, all you need to do is submit the form, and we will connect you with other team members to form a group.

The challenge is aimed at supporting sustainable, technological, and FinTech solutions in the following categories:
