The idea behind it is to create an open forum for Kuwaiti Entrepreneurs that are trying to start a business to showcase their creativity and innovation without having to gauge their wallets, and hence the non for profit nature. All are proceeds go to charity. Period.

The idea is simple, in order for them to weed out the undesirables there will be a process of elimination in which a handful of applicants are called back to present their business/project to a panel of judges, if they succeed in wowing the panel then only can they participate.
