ABOUT KNOWLEDGE OASIS MUSCAT​​

Oman’s first and most successful tech park, KOM was established by Madayn in 2003. Since then we’ve played a pivotal role in transforming business in Oman by creating an outstanding collaborative environment in which knowledge driven enterprises large and small can pursue their local and international ambitions. ​

Today, we’re home to over 190 future-focused domestic, regional and global companies, institutions and organizations. They range from flourishing home-grown SMEs and leading higher education providers to burgeoning businesses capitalizing on KOM’s well-established reputation as a centre of excellence and opportunity. Major multi-nationals have also based themselves on KOM, benefitting from access to Oman’s multi-lingual talent pool, exceptional trade links and the advantages of our prime location. And future-forward start-ups are nurtured in KOM’s two first-class incubators while enterprises of all types excel in the exceptional facilities of our Soft Landing Zone.​​​

As we look ahead to our twentieth anniversary, we’re proud of our track record of success - the part we’ve played in Oman’s digital transformation, the businesses that have flourished on KOM, the jobs we’ve helped generate, the contribution we’ve already made to the Sultanate’s diversifying economy and international competitiveness. We’re excited too about the smart opportunities of the knowledge-driven economy and the possibilities this offers not just our KOM community but the nation as a whole.​​

KOM is an exceptional environment for fast growth science, digital technology and knowledge-based businesses and organisations of all sizes. We offer a range of flexible high spec secure options and state-of-the-art facilities that can be personalised to meet your business needs and requirements. And as you scale up and expand your operations, we have the space and expertise to accommodate and support your big ambitions - whether that’s a larger office, dedicated premises or custom built facility.
