The South-South Global Assets and Technology Exchange (SS-GATE) hosted the Matchmaking Space at the Arab States Regional Expo. The Matchmaking Space was designed to bring together potential partners—companies, SMEs, entrepreneurs, and financiers—in order to scale-up innovative solutions in the region through market-based exchanges.

Through the Matchmaking Space, private sector participants had the opportunity to meet face-to-face with potential partners who also attended the Expo. A number of meetings were pre-arranged in the weeks leading up to the Expo, and some were arranged on-site. All the meetings were facilitated by experienced SS-GATE staff in order to support discussions and/or negotiations. The ultimate goal of these meetings was to match the right partners together in order to result in successful business deals.

The Matchmaking Space produced the following outcomes:

  1. 67 private sector entities participated in the Matchmaking Space. 42 of the organizations were seeking technologies and/or assets and 25 of the organizations indicated that they were providing technologies and/or assets.
  2. The participating organizations represented a wide range of industries including Agriculture, Clean Energy, Water, Waste Management, Construction, Transportation and even Civil Society which included causes such as Women's Empowerment and Education.
  3. 25 countries were represented by the participating organizations.
  4. 10 Companies were matched and entered into initial negotiations.
