Start, Discovery and Proposals (Week 1 and 2)
Companies meet one another and representatives from the Museum of the Future and the Dubai Future Foundation during an opening briefing. The companies learn more about the program during this orientation and the aims and goals of the accelerator. Representatives from the Museum of the Future introduce companies to key personnel within the Museum and provide a tour of the site. The representatives and the companies begin brainstorming ideas and developing draft proposals for presentation and review at the end of Stage 1.
Development (Week 3, 4 and 5)
Companies begin developing their proposals further based on Museum feedback. These proposals for the final pilot project will be developed over a series of 3 weeks through check-ins with the Museum of the Future representatives at the Dubai Future Accelerators area. Museum representatives will provide constructive feedback to the companies during the 3 weeks, and both will then work together to iterate and improve the proposal, discussing and negotiating scope and cost. The Museum will ensure the companies have access to relevant expertise and data in order to begin fully developing their proposals.
Proposal Pitch (Week 6)
Having jointly discussed and developed pilot project proposals, companies pitch their final proposal to representatives from the Museum of the Future and the dubai future Foundation. Museum representatives agree or decline to proceed with an MOU (or commercial agreement) with the companies based on their proposed pilots.
Drafting and Conclusion (Week 6)
Museum representatives work together to finalize a contract and begin creating their proposals.
