Tenmou is the first business angels group in Bahrain, and currently one of the first in the MENA region. Tenmou was set up by a group of motivated prominent Bahraini business men to invest in and mentor the next generation of high potential and innovative entrepreneurs.
Launched in 2011, Tenmou aims to support entrepreneurs with valuable business assistance, including financial investment, mentorship, advice and guidance. Tenmou recognizes that for many entrepreneurs, mentorship programmes can be as valuable as financial investments. Each project receives practical advice and training from the company’s board members, who bring with them a wealth of business experience. These training sessions expose the entrepreneurs to real business situations and are conducted in the form of regular workshops.
A part of Tenmou’s strategic plans is to further build the startup ecosystem in Bahrain and position the Kingdom as the hub for angel investment in the MENA region. The investment focus is on idea stage start-ups in the Kingdom of Bahrain from any sector, once to twice a year. Tenmou invests an average of USD $ 53,000 – 80,000 for a stake of on average 20%- 30% in each project that meets its criteria, and will provide a three-month mentorship period, including support services, at no cost to the entrepreneurs.
Tenmou will invest in the seed stage, providing both equity funding and mentorship to these entrepreneurs. This is a large gap that currently exists in the region – taking entrepreneurs ideas to reality. Through a structured selection process, the opportunity is available for all to take advantage of. Tenmou then puts the selected entrepreneurs through a rigorous mentorship program, bringing the angel investors together with the entrepreneurs in order to support their development. This is something that has been in place for many years in the rest of the world, but it is Tenmou’s mission to bring angel investments into the limelight in the region.
