The Mohammed Bin Rashid Initiative for Global Prosperity brings together the world’s leading manufacturers, innovative start-ups and entrepreneurs, governments and NGOs, to form a community dedicated to spreading global prosperity through “making”.
The launch of the initiative combines an annual award for global manufacturers, with ongoing innovation challenges for start-ups and entrepreneurs, to make positive change happen from the largest to the smallest companies across countries worldwide in alignment with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The MBR Global Maker Challenge is an online open innovation platform which promotes collaborative competition for start-ups and entrepreneurs to solve one of several real-world problems by applying a design-thinking approach used by the world’s most disruptive innovators to accelerate manufactured solutions from ideas to impact.
The MBR Global Prosperity Award is an annual award that will honor global manufacturers who have advanced the maker movement through a transformational contribution to any of the world’s most pressing issues. The winning innovation will have to demonstrate its contribution to advancing at least one of the UN SDG
