Manama, Bahrain, November 14th, 2022 – Infusion 51a, an impact investment fund based in the United States and expanding to the MENA Region, was exclusively invited to the seventh edition of the MENA Angel Investors Summit, an event held at ARCAPITA in Bahrain Bay on November 14th, 2022.

The event was hosted by TENMOU, a Bahrain-based angel investment company that announced the summit as part of the activities of the 2022 Global Entrepreneurship Week in early October this year.

An estimated 200 participants and 20 tech startups were part of the conference. TENMOU’s CEO, Mr. Nawaf Mohamed Al Koheji, stressed in a former press release the importance of hosting this kind of event, especially following the global pandemic, which forced tech innovation to step up and further accelerated the growth of the industry in recent years. 

Mehrab Ajalli, Infusion 51a’s Director of Strategic Growth in the MENA region, stated: “We’re thankful to TENMOU’s Mr. Nawaf Mohamed Alkoheji and Mr. Mishari Yousef for personally inviting us to our very first official event in Bahrain. It’s a city like no other and we expect to develop further relationships with other admirable individuals that are based here.”

Scott VanderMeer, General Partner of Infusion 51a, officially added: “What we learned in Bahrain is in line with our global mission for healthcare innovation. The MENA Angel Investors Summit was a great chance to connect with other firms and entrepreneurs that we find valuable and luckily this is only the beginning.”

For the fourth time this year, Infusion 51a’s US leadership is on a business trip in the Middle East. Mr. VanderMeer and Mr. Ajalli will be in different cities in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain to attend further meetings and conferences during November and early December.
