Female Founders Challenge

A Platform for Women in Tech to Showcase Their Solutions to the World

In a world fighting disparity between the sexes, the technology sector is still suffering. On average, female-led startups in the MENA region receive 23% less funding than their male counterparts. At Unbound, our aim is to change that by boosting female representation and inspiring women in tech across the Middle East.

Unbound Bahrain is preparing to showcase female entrepreneurship and inspire budding founders this March.  

Five of MENA's leading female entrepreneurs will have five minutes to pitch their business before a panel of judges, with prizes for the winner and runner-up (TBA).

Applications will close on February 8th.

Spaces for these sessions are limited - don't miss out on the opportunity to gain international exposure for your startup.
