How we work


How we work

Entrepreneurs are key drivers of economic and social progress. They are important sources of innovation and employment, and they strengthen market competition. The Kosmos Innovation Center works in three ways:

Inspire

We light a fire in young people... by training them to see opportunities that others miss, giving them the confidence to view themselves as entrepreneurs not employees and job creators instead of job seekers. We do it by delivering a best-in-class leadership and entrepreneurship program.

Invest

We go all in … by providing a full life-cycle of support to the most promising entrepreneurs, start-ups, and small businesses. We do it through tailored coaching, skills building, expert mentorship, seed funding, and facilitating connections within and across industries.

Transform

We go big … by positioning young entrepreneurs to tackle tough problems in key sectors and channeling their talent into innovative, private sector-led solutions. We do this through the KIC’s distinctive focus on commercial solutions and local knowledge.

Entrepreneurship is in our DNA.

Founded in 2003 by a small team of explorers, Kosmos Energy was once a start-up too. Now a successful, publicly-traded company, we know what it’s like to see an opportunity, pursue a dream, and grow a business. By nurturing the next-generation of entrepreneurs and facilitating innovation in sectors beyond oil and gas, we are contributing to the creation of healthier and more diverse economies.
