Mada Innovation Program
The Mada Innovation Program is designed to encourage innovators to create Arabic solutions for Persons with Disability and Elderly, thus increasing its availability within the region through a combination of grant programs.
Through a combination of entrepreneurship supporting streams, Mada aims to provide a mechanism to bring relevant innovative assistive technologies and accessibility products and services to the local market and beyond. This will enhance the lives of PWD in Qatar and the Arab world.
The goal of the program is to encourage the establishment of a private sector AT market in Qatar catered to the Arab world and increase awareness of the AT field among innovators.
There are 5 types of supporting streams that fulfil the objectives of the Mada Innovation Program through offering funding/resource opportunities and/or expert advice. These streams can involve offering grants for individuals and entities with innovative products or services.
The streams are the following:
- Endorsement Program
- Entrepreneurs grants
- Subject-Matter Expertise
