The Labour Fund (Tamkeen) has supported the Bahrain-based business-to-business (B2B) tendering platform, Procural, for developing their business which will lead to the creation of new job opportunities for tens of Bahrainis.

The support will enable Procural to enhance its ability to use cloud-based technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to match vendors with buyers.

This support is in line with Tamkeen’s Start Your Business program, which is open to SMEs and startups launched within the last three years and offers grants on items such as machinery, marketing, and the implementation of technology. The program encourages budding entrepreneurs and innovators to contribute to the positive development of the Kingdom’s economy.
