Winner of the SME Family Business Award
Congratulations to our SME Family Business Award winner - Sakhr Software
Family Business Council Gulf awards the SME Family Business Award to Kuwait family business, Sakhr Software for their generational success, innovation, and community impact.

Small- and medium-sized family enterprises are the unsung heroes of the region. Many have been passed down for generations and become a staple name within the community. In this award, we look to showcase a longstanding family firm who can demonstrate generational success and innovation.

Sakhr Software was founded in 1982, after nearly three decades in the industry they lead the field in Arabic language technology. Mr. Fahad Al-Sharekh, CEO of Sakhr Software accepted the award on the family’s behalf.

Mr. Al-Sharekh in response to the SME Award said, “I am very thankful and proud for this recognition. Thank you FBCG and FBN and the amazing team behind this initiative for this award. I do believe that everyone today is a winner, just by being on this list is a great honor to me. It is also very humbling to see what the other families are doing and all the great work they have brought to this region. Onwards and upwards to all the candidates today. We, as the AlSharekh Family behind Sakhr have always faced challenges in operating in Software and Technology R&D. It is our fundamental belief and profound conviction that without taking risk, we are risking even more, failure is always an option, but the fear of failure is not.”
