Brilliant Start

“Funding and Business development investment programs”

Brilliant Start:

Brilliant Lab and Rasameel Investment are putting together a Pre & Seed funding program for startups and founders with the only requirement being a minimum of a prototype or MVP (Minimum Valuable Product). The aim of this program is to provide a solid investment path for founders who are looking to take their venture to the next level. We have designed a bridge and environment to help founders build their startups through 4 to 6 months of a Kick and Co-Executing Program that will help them tackle, test, and penetrate the G.C.C. market.

Who is this program for?

This program is intended for founders and early stage teams that want to establish a footprint in the Arabian Gulf market (G.C.C), with a main focus on Kuwait, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia.


Our goal is to help founders and early team startups by providing them with essential equipment to provide proof of their concept. This includes cash, mentors, international exposure, and day-to-day support to accelerate their business in the region.

The Program

  • Up to $40k Investment
    The Brilliant Start investment committee will apply quick due diligence before deploying the approved investment amount to the startup accounts. We invest up to USD $40,000 cash for no less than 5% in your startup.
  • License and Office Support
    Brilliant Lab will offer 6 months of business licensing and office space support at the Brilliant Lab HQ in Bahrain.
  • Offshore Legal Setup
    Our goal is to make your startup ready for the next investment round. To do so, we offer a free legal offshore setup via our legal advisor office with the following preferences (BVI, Cayman Islands, ADGM).
  • Scouting
    For startups working on their next investment round, we will provide them with scouting services with our close investment networks in the G.C.C region.

Who are we looking for?

We are here to help co-found businesses from their earliest stages. No ideas – only MVP or prototypes are welcomed with no revenue generating startup necessarily required. Solo founders are welcomed, with an openness to work and formulate the early team of their startup.

What makes this Program Unique?

  • First Money In
    Easing barriers to starting a business by reducing dependency on family, friends, or loans – often the first people and things founders go to for financing.
  • Continuing to Finance Successful Businesses
    Startups with promising traction will have access to Brilliant Lab and Rasameel money and financial networks, negating the need of constantly fundraising externally.
  • Value Added Services (VAS)
    Enjoy strategic partnerships, Co-Media Campaigns, and startup integration plans within the Brilliant Lab corporate network.
