Start-ups for UAE

Thank you for your interest! The application deadline has expired since March 15th. We will now review the applications we have received and get back to the respective start-ups as soon as decisions are available.

Let's think big, let's think global, let's change the world!

Berlin's startup scene is a nucleus for innovations in a wide variety of economic sectors. Entrepreneurs from all over the world are already making a major contribution from Berlin to tackling global challenges. They use Berlin as a real laboratory, because the social and ecological problems of our time can be seen here as if under a burning glass. 
A lot of these innovations have the potential to make a global impact but it still takes a lot of courage and commitment to take the risk and leaving old paths behind. Together with the United Arab Emirates, we want to make it possible to break new and innovative ground and break down the boundaries of national thinking. Let's think big, let's think global, let's change the world!

We want you for the UAE!

IHK Berlin is looking for promising start-ups that are interested in cooperating with partners from United Arab Emirates (UAE). Innovative sustainability start-ups who are looking for investors, development partners or international expansion to the MENA region can apply until March 15th 2022!
During a delegation trip to the UAE with former mayor Michael Müller and the IHK President Daniel-Jan Girl in November 2021, leading economic institutions of the region have communicated their interest in cooperating with Berlin start-ups. Among them are the German Embassy Abu Dhabi, the German Emirati Institute, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the Ministry of Economy and Trade of UAE as well as the German Emirati Joint Council for Industry & Commerce (AHK).
IHK Berlin now wants to give Berlin start-ups the opportunity to present themselves in a short video to the partners abroad.
