For the Private Sector

KFAS provides a number of programs for the private sector that aims to develop human capital and research within enterprises. We fund research and seminars that help identify obstacles and devise solutions to Kuwait’s economic challenges, we offer capacity-building innovation training programs for private sector employees and we facilitate collaboration with international institutions to enhance business development and research to further transform Kuwait’s economy into a knowledge-based economy.

Investing in human capital is at the core of KFAS mission, hence, we provide a number of capacity-building training programs for the private sector locally and internationally. These programs aim to promote a culture of innovation in business. Our partnerships with international training institutes and universities include Harvard and UC Berkeley.

KFAS Innovation Challenge

One of our standout executive education programs is the annual KFAS Innovation Challenge, in which a small group of selected companies work with prestigious business schools to develop new initiatives and projects that advance a culture of innovation within each organization. After a competitive application process, executives and business leaders spend four months taking part in structured learning and training, exploring ways to drive real change within their companies. Each team is expected to tackle a company specific challenge and attempt to solve it during the course of the program.

The KFAS Innovation Challenge has been developed specifically for Kuwait’s private sector companies, over the years in collaboration with world-class academic institutions such as University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) Anderson School of Management, University of California, Berkeley, Royal College of Art-London and University of Cambridge.
