The capital and largest city of Bahrain with about 157,000 people, Manama was the hub of major trade routes in antiquity. This is a city for curious minds that appreciate diversity, where you can hang out in the colorful Bab el-Bahrain Souq and get lost amidst swathes of hand-woven fabrics, pearls and spices. Coworking in Manama is an exciting alternative to a dull office scene for the locals who live in the financial hub of the Persian Gulf region and the center of Islamic banking. Home to a multicultural society and surviving invasions over its history by the Portuguese and the Persians, Bahrain became an independent nation in the 19th Century.
Manama has seen Seedstars' summits in recent years, which were attended by local entrepreneurs, students and major players in the funding arena. Entrepreneurs have been given the opportunity to have one-on-one meetings with VCs to chat about pitches, business models or anything related to their startup. Coworking venues have given the bright minds of Manama the space to get creative and innovative on their own terms.
Bahrain is well on the way to getting some attention with an ecosystem that is taking progressive steps to put it at an advantage over other regional hubs. Coworking spaces are another step on the global ladder.
