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.

In light of the current situation around COVID19, we at KFAS have been in touch with some of our university partners regarding online webinars. We have been working hard with our partners to put together some valuable material to be available and free for our stakeholders to help them through this tough period. 

Below, we will be adding webinars from our international partners and sessions that will help navigate through these uncertain times which will aid to adapt to the new work environment and learn about the consequences of the COVID-19 on the economy and other areas of our lives.

These webinars, interviews, articles and links are open to our stakeholders to register to for free. The dates and times are available upon registration. New content will be available on a weekly basis.
