Bahrain to host meet on venture capital
By Mehmood Rafique
BAHRAIN will host the first conference on venture capital to discuss the current status of venture capital and how to utilize this major source of funding to stimulate the region's small and medium-size entrepreneurs. Venture capital is considered one of the highly specialized segments of funding, or "smart capital," with an anticipated fund under management to reach $4.4 billion by the end of the year in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
