Zain Great Idea is a corporate social responsibility program established by Zain, associated with IE Business School in Madrid, and Brilliant Lab (a Startup Accelerator Services from Kuwait).
The main aim of the program is to educate and nurture local Kuwaiti entrepreneurs in vital areas of their businesses. The duration of the program was 9 months, and is specialized for entrepreneurs who are looking to establish their startup businesses and those who wish to accelerate their business plan with international standards.
Zain great idea was a unique opportunity that contained diversified beneficial aspects. It had a spectacular combination of Kuwaiti youth, who were exposed to both social and economical business practices. Needless to express, a challenging exercise is to take 35 participants and manage each and everyone in an international program.
