Beban TV Show Wins the Television Programs Category During the 11th Edition of the Kuwait Creativity Awards

Entrepreneurship-themed reality television show and the region’s first private-public investment platform ‘Beban,’ produced by Hope Ventures, the investment arm of Hope Fund, has won the Kuwait Creativity Award in the Television Programs category. The award was presented at the 11th Arab Media Forum held in Kuwait.

His Excellency Mr. Aymen bin Tawfiq Almoayed, Chairman of Hope Fund, emphasized that this regional achievement was accomplished as the result of His Highness Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Representative of His Majesty the King for Humanitarian Work and Youth Affairs’ steadfast belief in youth’s capabilities to invest their creative energies in supporting sustainable development. His Excellency further pointed to His Highness’ directives and unwavering support, which led to the production of Beban TV show and its development across its seasons and the creation of a platform that supports investment on a regional scale.

Almoayed commented on this achievement: “We are honored to receive this award for Beban, as it reaffirms our commitment to synthesizing hope for promising entrepreneurs by facilitating co-investment opportunities alongside the private sector and providing them with the necessary resources and support to scale their businesses regionally. To all the ambitious forward-thinkers pursuing their entrepreneurial journeys, we invite you to seize opportunities and work towards telling your own most aspirational success stories.”

The show’s success in winning this award reflects its success as well as Hope Ventures’ in fulfilling its mission of facilitating opportunities and matchmaking promising entrepreneurs with strategic investors who can accelerate the growth of their businesses in new markets.
