AIM 2022 INVESTMENT AND STARTUP AWARDS TO HONOUR BEST IPOs AND INNOVATIVE BUSINESS MODELS
With the stage set for another vibrant session of the Annual Investment Meeting (AIM 2022), an initiative of the UAE Ministry of Economy, on March 29 – 31, 2022 in Dubai, what has been gathering increased attention is the special Investment and Startup Awards presented as part of the mega event. The announcement comes at a time the UAE aims to increase the size of its economy from Dh1.4 trillion to Dh3 trillion by 2030.
The AIM Investment Awards is a remarkable feature of the AIM. Over the years, it has become a hugely popular recognition of the best investment promotion agencies (IPAs) attracting the best investment project in a given year.
Startups will be honoured at this year’s AIM for innovative business model and brilliant application of technology for their business. This provides a unique opportunity for startup awardees to be recognised further by AIM global investors.
“It's vital to offer Startups and SMEs with full assistance as they are instrumental in strengthening the economic growth and development. AIM 2022 will serve as a essential tool for Startups to receive support from the global investment community,” said Dawood Al Shezawi, President of the Annual Investment Meeting Organizing Committee.
Startups will get the benefit of abundance of opportunities as the AIM is supported by several Ministries and Government Departments, Special Economic Zones, Smart City Solution Providers, Venture Capitalists, Angel Investors and several financial institutions. AIM participants include government officials, private investors, venture capitalists and prominent businessmen and businesswomen seeking to explore new ventures and business partnerships.
The Startup Pillar of AIM 2022 is considered a vibrant platform for startups to kick off their business and raise seed capital at the project’s early stage by showcasing the business’ top-end revenue and growth potential.
