15 November 2022 – Dubai, UAE: Committed to investments that create impact, A.R.M. Holding partners with Prototypes for Humanity, an initiative that raises awareness of global problems while celebrating solutions and actions that have the power to solve them.

Debuting in DIFC from 16 – 17 November, Prototypes for Humanity brings together trailblazing ideas, projects, and technologies, addressing critical challenges affecting us all. The most diverse exhibition to date with applications received from 450+ universities from over 100 countries, the initiative spotlights 100 IP-backed, best-in-class impact innovation projects by students across all science, tech, and design disciplines, proposing solutions for a better world. These projects illustrate the numerous ramifications of global challenges, and evidence how different approaches to problem-solving are not only complementary but necessary[FA1] .

On a mission to sustain and enrich the communities in which it operates, A.R.M. Holding endorses Prototypes for Humanity. Having launched a $2.7 million fund in 2019 to support social impact innovations,
