Start Your Journey
Bidayat collaborates with exceptional creative individuals and brands that are looking to build the next generation of ventures in consumer industries.
They are intrinsically innovative, often digitally-native, always culturally relevant, authentic and responsible in their business practices. True visionaries in their respective fields, with ambitions to match.
The Mediterranean Basin’s extremely rich cultural, artistic and creative heritage is a continuous source of inspiration for many creative minds globally.
Locally grown creative talent has aspirations to build and grow responsible brands, responding to consumer needs in the post-pandemic, digitally-connected world.
The opportunity to do so is limited by a lack of know-how and mentorship, infrastructure inadequate for start-ups, mismatched operational expertise, weak global visibility and limited access to funding.
Our aim is to support the creative journey and help transform local ambitions from the Mediterranean Basin into strong, responsible and aspirational global brands of the future.
A diverse team of industry pioneers dedicated to the creative ecosystem, providing world-class expertise, strategic insights, mentorship and connections to help creative talent unlock their full potential.
