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’s Innovation Impact Grant Programme provides funding, business support and exposure to innovative solutions that are already benefitting communities or the environment - or both, anywhere in the world.
To date, the programme has attracted more than 2,300 applications from 136 countries. Following a rigorous evaluation process, Expo Live now has a community of 70 Global Innovators from 42 countries.
Applications for the next cycle will open later this year.
