“In these challenging times, it’s imperative to provide startups and SMEs with the maximum support they need since they contribute so much to economic strength and development globally. The Annual Investment Meeting 2022 will serve as a vital tool for startups to receive support from the global investment community as they network with key investors, learn about growth strategies, and promote their products, services, and ideas.”

AIM is supported by several Ministries and Government Departments, Special Economic Zones (SEZ), Smart City Solution Providers, Venture Capitalists, Angel Investors and several financial institutions to provide startups with an abundance of opportunities.

Startups contribute significantly to economic development and job creation globally. By 2030, the number of startups around the world is expected to increase and will create over 600 million jobs.

The event will offer businesses, governments and civil society with an independent and future-oriented platform to amplify their efforts to influence and facilitate multistakeholder interaction and impact. The startup pillar will connect keen investors looking for new avenues and projects for investments in sustainable and innovative development, as well as governments looking for startup projects to increase their economic growth.
