During its life, the company has organized many public programs and campaigns within its social responsibility activities towards leadership, development, and entrepreneur’s environment; through which many contributions were made to universities, youth groups, and small projects owners of various age groups. Bonsai also provided several interactive programs in cooperation with various governments and chambers of commerce across the Arab World. As well as specialized awareness campaigns aiming to raise awareness of entrepreneurship and methods of small business management. This includes the campaign known as “Opening Sesame”, which spoke metaphorically about opening the cavern and the treasures of entrepreneurship as heritage described the fortunes and winning wealth thru depiction of the luck of the person who discovers the cavern of famous Ali Baba and the treasures he would attain. The imagery has always been that those who reach this cave would change their reality and aspirations and find glory and wealth to achieve all their dreams. Today we are in an open world where its individual economies start with a successful idea and a world exclusive to adults through the opportunities of the new knowledge economy. In our campaign we chose to display winning and wealth as the opportunity of pioneering and financial freedom that we see today by linking them to the tale of reaching Ali Baba treasures and his wealthy cave, crossing the gates and introducing the discovery plan and announcing the coordinates of the treasures of entrepreneurship.
The idea of the 3 months campaign came in 3 major stages, each stage is one month long. Every stage should be inspirational and meets the conditions of mental programming, and laid over one month, provided the stages are effective through the transmission of audio and visual messages, and forums, and built on the footsteps of the following stages:
