The Annual Investment Meeting in partnership with its Sustainable Partner, Bedayat by Sustainable City, will present the UAE Emirates Startup Roadshow on September 17 and 20.
Aligning with the precautionary measures, smart solutions and a resilient environment, the roadshow will cover four emirates: Dubai, Ras Al Khaimah, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah.
Two competitions will be hosted on Day One beginning in Dubai, Ras Al Khaimah following with Sharjah and Abu Dhabi, respectively. The chosen winners will receive numerous benefits such as access to all the features of Digital AIM 2020 -- a special digital edition of The Annual Investment Meeting, this year. In addition, the winners from all emirates will also be provided with a virtual exhibition kiosk, a viable chance at potential meeting with investors and access to participating at the AIM Global National Champions League 2020, for a prize of $50,000 ($10,000 per winner).
In collaboration with the Annual Investment Meeting’s Sustainable Partner, Bedayat at the Sustainable City, an active initiative has been taken to organise mentoring sessions prior to the pitch competition and provide four winners from each emirate a tour at Sustainable City along with a workshop.
Karim El-Jisr, Chief Sustainability Officer at Diamond Developers and Executive Director for SEE Institute, said: “The UAE Emirates Startup Roadshow is a smart initiative that provides the necessary resources for businesses to move to the next stage of growth by encouraging diversification, determination and efficiency. Our Sustainable Partner, Bedayat at the Sustainable City is going to add an exceptional touch by organising a mentoring session prior to the competition. This is indeed very special as UAE is the home base for AIM.”
UAE is home to various futuristic, smart and resilient projects, with potential start-ups gaining recognition round the clock. In 2020, investments in Middle East start-ups are set to exceed $1 billion. In addition, the UAE has accounted for 60% of total funding across the Middle East and North Africa.
