Mohammed bin Rashid Initiative for Global Prosperity

We believe access to innovation paves the way to building prosperity

The Initiative

The Mohammed bin Rashid Initiative for Global Prosperity unites the world’s leading manufacturers, start-ups and entrepreneurs, governments, UN agencies and philanthropists, academia and researchers, to form a community dedicated to spreading global prosperity through the art of ‘making’

The initiative specifically seeks to recognize noble and novel achievements that have positively contributed to the well-being of our world while fostering the values of resilience, community, harmony and dignity

“I openly call upon all those who wish to join us in our march towards serving humanity.
We may not live for hundreds of years, but the products of our creativity can leave a legacy long after we are gone”

– HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid, Al Maktoum
