Dubai has been built with an eye towards the future while placing a high value on innovation, creativity, sustainability, diversity, and connectedness. These are principles that have led to the Emirate’s quick ascension as a global destination for business and leisure. These are also some of the forces that are converging to position Dubai as a future, global MedTech hub.

From idea to manufactured product, Dubai’s infrastructure provides companies with a business-friendly environment, access to the talent required to fill all roles and responsibilities, a strong international banking system and investor ecosystem, world-class shipping logistics, close proximity to markets throughout the rest of the Middle East plus Europe, Africa, and Asia.

The Dubai Health Innovators competition has been organized to put a spotlight on all that Dubai has to offer innovative MedTech companies and to provide them with reasons why they should consider growing their companies here.
