WestFive was established in 2018 after doing some consulting work for international companies entering the Kuwait market, providing advisory services to start-ups, and running training workshops for local companies.  Establishing a legal entity became the natural next step for us to grow and to work formally with our partners from the UK.

The name WestFive comes from W5, the post code of Ealing, a leafy west London suburb.  Ealing has been and remains an integral part of our lives since the 1980s.
