Dubai Smatrpreneur Competition 2020

The Dubai Chamber of Commerce, under its Dubai Startup Hub initiative, recently kicked off the launch of its Dubai Smartpreneur 2020 competition.

The competition is open to startups offering solutions under the Opportunity, Mobility, and Sustainability themes of the Expo 2020 event.

It is open for all entrepreneurs in UAE and across the world.

The second vice-chairman of Dubai Chamber, Mr. Hishal Al Shirawi, noted that the competition is one of the largest of its kind and a key initiative that has brought success to the Dubai Chamber. This is under the strategy of fostering entrepreneurship for global companies, empowering them with the knowledge and providing them with tools required for them to thrive and grow.

Over the last 4 editions of the competition, more than 1,600 entries were received, and the number of global entries were increasing. This indicates that Dubai continues to remain an attractive destination for global startups.

The launch ceremony was attended by key delegates from the Dubai Chamber, past winners and participants of the competition, members of the startup community and representatives of DP World and Expo 2020 Dubai.

The ceremony outlined the key criteria for entry submissions, with benefits such as cash prizes for winners, a 4-day Bootcamp for the top 50 startups, and an opportunity for the top 10 startups to exhibit at Expo 2020. The competition itself gives startups the unique chance to be a part of the Dubai Government strategy to convert the city into a global platform for startups that are innovative.

Startups must meet all criteria and submit their entries before February 2020 on the Dubai Startup Hub website. The results will be announced in April 2020.
