The 3arabi Impact Initiative aims at identifying and supporting projects/social enterprises that impact the Arab world, regardless of sector or country. Three innovative finalists will be matched with an advisory panel comprised of experts that will provide mentorship and advice to help the innovator develop a concrete action plan to take their initiative to the next level – through investment, commercialization, scale up, team-building, strategic partnerships, or other aspects that are appropriate for the initiative. The projects will be presented to the audience in a dedicated, interactive session at the Harvard Arab World Conference, Dubai happening early December 2019. Milestones will be presented during the Arab Conference at Harvard (ACH) which will take place in the spring of 2020.
