MANAMA, February 28, 2024

Ebrahim Khalil Kanoo Company is set to sponsor at LEAP 2024 creative projects of students from ICT colleges in Bahrain, the Bahrain Technology Companies Society (BTECH) has said.
This sponsorship will extend to the Bahraini Pavilion during the third edition of LEAP 2024, Tech’s Biggest event, scheduled to be held at the Riyadh Exhibition & Convention Centre from March 4 to 7. 
Ebrahim K Kanoo will be a silver sponsor, and the Bahraini Pavilion will be organised by BTECH. This initiative underscores Ebrahim K Kanoo's recognition of the value of investing in exceptional young talents in Bahrain. 
The company emphasises the significance of unifying and directing efforts to contribute to the development of Bahraini youth potential, by providing comprehensive support and fostering awareness of the latest global developments in the technical sector.
Unique platform
By sponsoring this programme, the company offers participating students a unique platform to showcase their technical projects in key areas like artificial intelligence applications, financial technology, data analysis, cybersecurity and application development.
Additionally, students will engage in skill-building workshops and participate in insightful communication sessions with industry leaders, enhancing their professional network and visibility within the technology sector. This combined focus on project presentation, skill development, and networking directly increases their employability within the sector.
Talal Kanoo, Managing Director of Ebrahim Khalil Kanoo Company, commented: "Our decision to sponsor students' participation in this global event is part of our commitment as a responsible company to support activities, initiatives, and employees of educational institutions. We firmly believe in the potential of our students, recognising that the youth are the future of the kingdom. It is our responsibility to prepare and provide everything necessary to nurture and develop their talents. Therefore, we are dedicated to collaborating with initiatives that create a motivating force for our students."
Outstanding opportunity
Tareq Fakhroo, Chairman of BTECH, said: "LEAP stands as the premier technology conference in the region, delivering expert insights and cutting-edge content on pivotal technology subjects. This platform is instrumental in enhancing the IT industry in the kingdom, offering an outstanding opportunity for Bahraini students. They can delve into the latest developments, exhibit their technical prowess, and leverage opportunities to promote and market their projects."
Fakhroo commended the significant role played by Ebrahim K Kanoo Company in supporting students, sponsoring their projects, and empowering them in alignment with the kingdom's vision aimed at mobilising the energies of the youth. This vision places emphasis on quality production as a primary contributor to development. 
Fakhroo further highlighted that contributing to the investment in the capabilities and efforts of the youth, as well as supporting their innovations, not only benefits society and the economy but also facilitates the transformation of their projects into commercial products, which in turn, strengthens national technical exports.--TradeArabia News Service
