The ambitious new project will offer academic courses, an all-inclusive studio and a smart app/digital platform, all geared to helping Kuwaiti youth unlock their potential.
In an effort to provide a both a physical and virtual space for young Kuwaiti innovators to realise their potential, Sheikha Ohoud Al Sabah and Riham Al Ayyar have teamed up to launch VO, the country’s first integrated platform for incubating youth.
Pencilled in for launch in the summer of 2021, VO feeds into a sweeping new focus on Kuwaiti youth and will offer an academic program that aims to to identify and nurture talents, as well as an all-inclusive studio through which they can express their innovations and a smart app to promote creative productions through a high-tech digital platform.
“We all witnessed the outstanding and engaging content demonstrated by Kuwaiti youth throughout the lockdowns on different digital platforms,” said Sheikha Ohoud Al Sabah, who will serve as the Chairwoman of VO. “The stellar rates of public engagement and acknowledgement received from followers all over the region made us realise the importance of unleashing and highlighting Kuwait’s hidden gifts to help position the country globally.”
Riham El Ayyar will serve as the VO CEO and the collaboration of two of the Kuwaiti ecosystem's most influential women is certainly something to be noted.
