The Expo Live Innovation Impact Grant Programme aims to fund novel and innovative solutions that encapsulate the spirit of Expo 2020 Dubai’s overall theme: ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’. Expo’s three subthemes, Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability, are focus areas for funding.
The programme awards funding of up to USD 100,000 each to social enterprises, startups and grassroots projects from around the world, based on their potential to impact the environment positively and generate real social value.
Expo Live is funding solutions in both developed and less developed markets, building a platform for knowledge exchange and co-creation. Entrepreneurs, SMEs, non-profit organisations and government entities are encouraged to submit their solutions for consideration.
Expo Live’s Innovation Impact Grant Programme provides funding and exposure to innovative prototype-level solutions that are benefitting communities and the environment around the world.
To date, the programme has attracted more than 2,300 applications from 136 countries. Following a rigorous evaluation process, Expo Live has a community of 45 Global Innovators from 30 countries.
Grantees from the third cycle will be announced this year.
