Scotland at Expo 2020 Dubai: evaluation report

An evaluation report detailing the work undertaken in developing and delivering Scotland's programme of activity and engagement at the EXPO 2020 Dubai between October 2021 and March 2022, highlighting outcomes achieved and recommendations to support participation at future World Expo events.

Section 7: Capital Investment

Glasgow based Greenbackers Investment Capital were offered an opportunity and a venue to deliver a Clean Technology Showcase event on the morning of Friday 25th March. SDI boosted in person company participation with two of their supported companies helping to mitigate the inability of some Greenbackers supported companies travelling to the event.

Showcasing Companies:

  • Greenbackers: Blockchain Triangle; C Power Alba; Celtic Renewables; REDstack (in-person); Hydrogen Systems Australia; Katrick Technologies (in-person); Kleanbus; Subsea Micropiles
  • SDI: Logan Energy; Plus Zero Ltd; Precision Impulse; R3 IoT; Topolytics; Trade in Space

Some companies have since returned to the region to continue conversations with potential customers, first adopters of their technologies, potential joint venture partners and funders. In addition, many companies went on to participate in Greenbackers "Super Pitch" at the global All Energy Conference, promoting them to over three hundred registered investors on the Showcase Platform.

Greenbackers also experienced some positive outcomes as a result of the Expo opportunity including meetings with Mubadala, ADNOC and various connections linked to their involvement at COP28.
