Global innovation network Thinkers & Doers, the Bahrain Economic Development Board and Bahrain's private sector development organization Tamkeen, are coming together to present an international conference, "Follow the Leaders." Gathering global angel investors, venture capitalists, business leaders, and entrepreneurs, the event -to be held on March 6, 2018 at the Shaikh Ebrahim Center for Culture and Research, Bahrain- revolves around boosting the startup ecosystem in the region, and on the agenda of the conference are panel discussions, pitching sessions, workshops, master classes, and more.

Noting that a "new generation of leaders are prompting us to rethink our economic rules and growth strategies," the event believes in bringing together both public and private stakeholders to support entrepreneurs, Thinkers & Doers states that Bahrain was picked as a natural venue choice owing to a key role it plays in supporting the innovators of the Arab world. As the case with Thinkers & Doers events in general, the conference is structured to facilitate more interactions among the participants, with the sessions also aiming to "create concrete opportunities for collaboration."
