The Bahrain Business Incubator Centre (BBIC) was established in 2003 as the first mixed-use incubation center in the G.C.C. The Center’s mission since its establishment is to support the growth and sustainability of small and medium enterprises (SME’s) in Bahrain. The BBIC is achieving this mission by providing governmentally approved physical spaces for business to start and grow, receiving tailored facilities and services designed to increase the success rate and sustainability of our tenants.
Bahrain Development Bank (BDB), the leading SME funding of the Kingdom of Bahrain, established the BBIC as a means to aid in the economic development of the country, through providing a full scope incubation program, to aid the growth of startup businesses. The BBIC remains a fully owned and pioneering subsidiary of the BDB, which is expanding and growing in a sustainable manner.
Our growth was possible through the support of all our affiliates, both nationally and internationally. The support we have received through our government, from support institutions such as Tamkeen, has enabled us to progress and accelerate the growth of our tenants along with our organization. The BBIC has graduated over 100+ businesses into the market successfully, since its inception and is looking to graduate a lot more in the coming years.
