The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in Kuwait City in a time when Kuwait is trying to diversify its economy from the oil industry. A city that is seeing a number of entrepreneurs launching new companies is embracing the coworking ethos as a solution for local freelancers and businesses to set up shop without the costly overheads of going it alone. Incubators, startup ecosystems and the backing of the government are giving the city's young people a chance to enter the global market place.
Coworking is a step that could foster change in the economy creating an environment for innovative souls to mingle and network without the need to go totally out on a limb for costly infrastructure. It is creating a home for a second economy for Kuwait, a country where you will find the world's 5th largest oil reserves.
The capital of the Arabian Gulf nation of Kuwait, Kuwait City has plenty to keep you enthralled during your coffee or lunch breaks or those times when you need to clear your head. It is slick and stylish in places and then in others a little bit on the ragged side. A wealthy metropolis and sprawling city, you can check out its amazing aquarium, meander around museums or simply sit in a cafe watching the passing parade as you sip your morning espresso or get lost for days in the colorful souq.
When the stomach rumbles take over from the brain waves, you can easily duck outside the doors of your coworking space and indulge in local dishes that are a fusion of Arabian, Persian, Indian and Mediterranean such as "machboos".
