• Market Access Programme to UAE - Cleantech edition

    19 - 24 November 2023

  • Overview

    Take your Cleantech startup to the UAE!


    Join us for a five-day program to meet key players in the UAE's thriving cleantech sector. This includes a vibrant investment ecosystem, strong government support, and corporate innovators.


    Why is the UAE so exciting for cleantech companies? Here are some figures to quantify the opportunity.

    • The UAE is investing USD 163 billion to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.
    • The UAE is set to introduce 42,000 Electric Vehicles (EVs) by 2030
    • The UAE is developing a low-carbon industry, including green steel production using hydrogen.

    This opens up opportunities for startups amid the UAE's systemic shift to full-scale decarbonisation. Energy, manufacturing, and transport are some examples. But advanced and emerging technologies - such as AI, IoT, and robotics - which can improve energy efficiency, can also benefit from this program.


    The MAP will take place from 19 – 24 November 2023. The COP28 in Dubai is set for the following week. The climate change conference will further catalyse investments into the Cleantech sector.


    Eligible participants will be able to enjoy generous subsidies. Enterprise Singapore and the UAE Embassy will help to defray the trip's cost.


    We are limiting the programme to 10 startups, so be sure to register before the deadline on 6 October 2023!
