ACK success in Injaz “Company Program” Competition for the second time in a row

Australian College of Kuwait (ACK) students recently won the Injaz “Company program” Annual Competition for High Schools and Universities in Kuwait for the second time in a row. ACK team represented by Business, Engineering and English Program students formed a company named ‘Meren’ and launched their first product called ‘MySO’ in front of the judges.

The students assembled all their information and data into a formal business report and business presentation as well as preparing a booth to showcase their product, in addition to their appearance for a final interview with the judging panel before being declared as winners. The students were focused on creating an innovative product for future

The students who represented ACK were Talal Al Mouli (leading the team), Yousef Al Ali, Wafa Nauman Shaikh, Barehan El-Zohairi, Afsah Abdullah, Sara Dawara, Ali Al Sarraf and Ariya Dashti. Students received guidance from ACK faculty member Ms. Rupali Bhagat who was their mentor for the program and guided them throughout this successful journey.
The ACK students outperformed their competitors in all aspects and as a result of their hard work over an extended period they secured 2 prizes: Best Company Award and Best Innovative Product for the Year 2019.
