Thinking beyond the box:
an interview with Evno
founder Ahmed Alsendi
B Entrepreneur Magazine
talked to Evno founder
Ahmed Alsendi to discover
his inspiration behind his
innovative startup -Evno.
Please tell us about EvNo and what inspired you to
create the business?
When I started entrepreneurship, I realized that I had
to go to several different sites in order to check out
events in Bahrain. I didn’t realize it, but I was starting
miss events that I wanted to go to because there’s
not one single space that tells you about this events.
This is where the idea for EvNo came about.
I wanted to create a single platform that allows
people to link up to and discover great events within
How does Evno differentiate itself from the other
event platforms currently in the marketplace?
Evno is basically a single platform that allows
multiple entities to discover, manage and organize
events. For example, if you’re a person who’s tired
of the same old events, or you’re new to the city,
Evno hooks you up with different events and gives
notification of upcoming events.
If you’re an event organizer, the app helps you to
prepare an event website, brochures, and name
badges. It allows you to check in attendees, keep
them updated about event changes, give out
notifications to prospective attendees and much
more. You can say, it’s an all-around event platform.
How do you plan to scale the business?
We want to establish linkages with big companies like
Brinc Batelco IOT Hub (which we have already done),
and also the University of Bahrain—to help them with
their events. In this way, we aim to get experience and
traction and inshallah one day, we will expand our
platform to Saudi Arabia
