Five firms compete to become Bahrain’s top tech innovators

The finale of a competition to choose Bahrain’s top tech titans will be held today with the winners being announced tomorrow.

Hosted online by KPMG in Bahrain, the contest was launched in mid-June and five tech-based organisations, uRento, RSquare, FinMind, Taajer and TullabApp, have been shortlisted to compete in the finale.

Vying to be recognised as one of Bahrain’s most successful technology innovators, the contestants will pitch their solutions to a panel of judges from a range of organisations representative of the marketplace in the kingdom, along with KPMG’s subject matter experts.

The winning company will gain exposure by being featured in KPMG’s ‘Winners’ Report’ and media profiles.

Commenting, KPMG in Bahrain enterprise partner Harish Gopinath said, “The Covid-19 pandemic has showcased the imminent need to adopt and integrate technology in everything we do. The increase in technological advancement leads to the imminent need to develop innovative solutions to meet customers’ expectations, maintain growth and stay competitive.”

The inaugural KPMG Private Enterprise Tech Innovator competition follows the success of KPMG’s Best British Tech Pioneer, which has crowned innovators such as Echo Health and What3Words.

It is being hosted in the following 17 countries: Bahrain, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Israel, Mexico, Nordic Region, Portugal, Qatar, South Africa, Spain, the UK, the UAE and the USA.

Winners from each of the participating countries will progress to the global final at Web Summit 2021 in Lisbon in November, where they will get the opportunity to demonstrate their growth plans and be recognised on the global stage.
