Ma'an Social Incubator Opens Applications for Cohort 8 

Ma’an Social Incubator (MSI), a pioneering initiative that nurtures social entrepreneurship, is now accepting applications for its eighth cohort, focusing on 'Youth for Climate Action.' Applications will be accepted until August 16, 2023, for the program that propels startups with innovative solutions to societal, cultural, or environmental challenges.

MSI Cohort 8 is specially designed for the youth and startups developing trailblazing ideas to tackle the pressing issue of climate change. With the UAE aiming for 'Net Zero' emissions by 2050 and hosting COP28 this year, the relevance of this challenge is underscored.

The eighth cohort is keen on exploring innovative answers to questions like involving the youth in climate change advocacy, supporting businesses offering eco-friendly products and services, utilizing emerging technologies to empower youth for effective climate action, and identifying promising solutions for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The MSI program offers a range of benefits, including workshops, training, mentorship, coaching, market and network access, investor access, office space, funding, and post-program support. Eligibility criteria stipulate that applicants should be UAE-based entrepreneurs working on innovative and scalable solutions to climate change, with a founding team of 2+ members, at least one of whom is aged 18-35. Additionally, startups must have validated business models and early traction and be willing to register legally in Abu Dhabi.

The journey for the chosen entrepreneurs will kick-off with application and selection, followed by an information session, shortlisting, online pitch day, and final startup selection announcement. The selected startups will then embark on the training and mentorship program from September 5 to November 30, 2023, with post-program support extending until December 29, 2023.

MSI Cohort 8 presents an unparalleled opportunity for ambitious startups committed to making a real impact in the field of climate change. To be part of this transformative journey, click on this link to apply now.
