Competition | BisB Innovation Hub Riffa

As part of our promise to simplify customer’s money matters and transform the traditional customer experience bringing it into the modern age of innovation, we are in process of upgrading our Riffa Financial Mall into a brand new concept, we’re calling it BisB Innovation Hub - Riffa. The Innovation Hub will offer the best of both worlds in a single space, with one floor dedicated to traditional customer service complete with customer service agents offering their usual services as well as a floor that is fully digital for customers that prefer to complete their banking transactions themselves. It will be a place beyond banking, because we’ll be opening up a coffee shop in the same space so you can grab a cup of coffee with a friend.

At BisB, one of our key focus areas has been to provide support the Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) sector by delivering innovative corporate products that facilitate their transactions. We wanted to go one step further and provide support in a more direct manner by offering the opportunity of a lifetime to one lucky Bahraini coffee shop owner.

For this reason, we are launching a competition for our upcoming BisB Innovation Hub in Riffa, to offer one lucky local coffee joint in the Kingdom the opportunity to open up a branch at the new upgraded branch. The winning coffee shop owner will benefit from a 1BD rent for the duration of their tenure, free utilities as well as a 3m x 3m area at the branch to display and sell their products, which will further assist them in nurturing and development their business.

Coffee shop owners interested in applying must meet the eligibility criteria below and fill out the application form, which must then be emailed to by Monday March 9, 2020

Please note that submissions that are sent beyond the deadline or that do not meet the eligibility criteria will not be considered.

We’d like to wish all applicants the best of luck in this competition.
