Batelco Sponsorship for Entrepreneurs Day Supports Bahraini Youth
Batelco Bahrain CFO Dr. Ghassan Murad and General Manager Wholesale Division Hamza Ali were in attendance at Entrepreneurs Day 2011, which took place on May 31st at the Diplomat Radisson SAS Hotel. Batelco was a key sponsor of the one day event.
Entrepreneurs Day was organised by BDB (Bahrain Development Bank) – which specializes in financing small and medium businesses – and AIESEC, the biggest student organisation worldwide which is a leading platform for young people to explore and develop their leadership potential. AIESEC Bahrain is recognised as a leading innovator in youth development programmes in the Kingdom.
The aim of Entrepreneur’s Day, now in its 3rd year, is to create awareness about entrepreneurship and to introduce the concept as a career option for graduating Bahrainis, as opposed to the traditional employment route. Batelco is a keen supporter of initiatives that in turn support the youth of Bahrain and accordingly place such programmes high on the Company’s social responsibility agenda.
