Beban Program, the reality TV show dedicated to entrepreneurship and the pioneering joint investment platform between the public and private sectors in the region, has announced the commencement of receiving project applications for its fourth season.
The program encourages entrepreneurs seeking investment opportunities to register and participate through the website beban.me before the application deadline on March 31, 2024.
Upon the selection of participating entrepreneurs, they will undergo an intensive training camp specialized in developing their projects.
This camp will be led by experts in the field of entrepreneurship and will cover topics such as understanding the fundamentals of fundraising, introducing business models, developing market entry strategies, and preparing them to present their projects to an investor panel to ensure their readiness for the program.
To apply for the fourth season of the Beban Program, entrepreneurs must meet the following criteria:
The project should be financially viable.
The project should have proven market appeal (simpler models may be rejected unless the founders have prior successes).
The founder should possess the necessary skills to achieve the company’s goals, with experience and a successful track record considered an additional advantage.
The project should have high potential for growth and expansion.
Beban boasts a successful track record spanning three seasons, having raised investments exceeding $6 million in its first two seasons.
The program has been broadcasted on prominent TV channels in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, including Al Rai, SBC, Dubai TV, Bahrain TV, Oman Cultural Channel, and the region’s first and largest video-on-demand platform, “Shahid.”
