Expo Live Innovation Programme 2023
Expo Live Innovation Programme supports novel solutions that address pressing environmental or climate challenges, with the promise of a brighter future for our planet.
Expo City Dubai aims to become a hub for global innovation that inspires and acts as a catalyst for creative and scalable solutions. It fosters a community of agents of change by first sensitizing them to climate challenges, and then engaging with them to collectively create impact solutions.
Funding of up to USD 50,000 per innovative solution
The Innovation Impact Grant Programme focuses on start-ups, SMEs, social enterprises, and organizations that could leverage grants up to USD 50 000 to capacitate their projects in their journey to scale.
Funding levels will depend on the project’s maturity stage, its intended duration, and the extent of its impacts in the subtheme areas as well as at the community level.
Tranched funding against milestones could be introduced for larger projects, multi-year initiatives, and start-up ventures
In addition to providing grants, Expo Live will leverage the upcoming 28th Conference of the Parties event to showcase the Global Innovators; connecting them to an international network of global leaders, businesses, and visitors.
Grab the opportunity for knowledge exchange and co-creation
With the Expo Live Innovation Programme, you will build partnerships with local business incubators, accelerators, mentors, and investors in order to strengthen and promote active and productive ecosystems.
Beyond grant funding, successful grant recipients will also have access to networking and partnership opportunities, marketing and communications exposure, as well as additional funding enabling their solutions to be showcased during the 28th Conference of the Parties (COP28), hosted by Expo City Dubai Authority.
