DMCC launches growth programme for social impact businesses in Dubai

WAM: DMCC, the world’s flagship Free Zone and Government of Dubai Authority on commodities trade and enterprise, Wednesday announced that it has partnered with C3 (Companies Creating Change), to launch the Impact Scale-Up Programme.

C3 is a UAE-based social enterprise empowering impact-driven entrepreneurs across the Middle East, Africa and Turkey, while the DMCC is the UAE’s first Free Zone to support companies with a social purpose in such a way.

The programme will support 20 businesses contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs), enabling them to establish a presence in the UAE and leverage the local ecosystem as a launchpad to successfully expand across the MEA region. The comprehensive training and networking programme will provide a proven blueprint to successfully enter the UAE market, and connect with local and regional investors and blue-chip companies. Applications are now open and will close on 30th April, 2022.
