The UICCA Launchpad is an accelerator for green startups globally.

UICCA identifies startups with innovative approaches to climate challenges. Through the Launchpad, we provide a dedicated pathway to advance new climate tech. Launchpad participants get tailored support, investor introductions, and advocacy to unlock new development opportunities.

In 2024, we're recruiting startups focused on decarbonisation.


Our zero-equity programme offers:

  • Mentorship from experienced industry professionals,
  • Customized workshops to enhance your solutions,
  • An exclusive showcase event with leading investors and industry leaders, and
  • Ongoing market access and regulatory support in the UAE.

Current Solution Categories

Carbon emission reduction, carbon capture, and alternatives to carbon-intensive technologies.


The Launchpad is more than the typical startup accelerator. In addition to mentorship and strategic guidance, we provide connections to major stakeholders and leaders across the private and public sectors.

Our team introduces participating startups to investors so they can access the capital they need to grow. We advocate for new development opportunities and pilot programs in the UAE. We leverage our network to create new partnerships and support systems for climate tech.

The COP28 Global Stocktake in Dubai highlighted the "fundamental role of technology development and transfer" in mitigating climate change.

UICCA crafted the Launchpad to facilitate the development of climate technology in the UAE. Our country features two essential factors for innovation: a burgeoning startup scene and a supportive regulatory environment. Through the Launchpad, we enable businesses to advance our shared net-zero vision.
