INJAZ Most Innovative Product Award 2022 Khutwa
This year students in the 6th Form have taken part in the Injaz company program with the creation of a company called Khutwa. The Company Program is an entrepreneurial learning process of creativity, innovation, teamwork, planning, discovery, action, and competition. The students were to create and finance their own business idea. With the covid restrictions in place over the past year, this was a challenging prospect. For the students of Khutwa this was viewed as a small challenge to overcome.
Their mission was to get people more involved in physical activities within Kuwait. They did this through the use of fitness competitions. People could upload their daily results via social media such as Instagram, TikTok, Discord and their own website. Their marketing successes lead to people from all over the world taking part in their weekly fitness competitions.
The company program comes to completion with students submitting a business report, a presentation and an interview. These were judged by executive team members from some of the largest companies in Kuwait such as Zain, Gulf Bank, Boeing and Al Aghanim Industries. Khutwa excelled in each of these. Their creativity, hard work and dedication paid off with them winning the Most Innovative Product of the year. The result of their success was published across national newspapers and local television stations.
