Ghadan 21

Ghadan 21 is Abu Dhabi's three-year accelerator programme that aims to drive forward the emirate's development through investment in business and innovation.


Ghadan 21 was launched in 2019 by HH Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to support and deliver the transformation of the Emirate’s economy, knowledge ecosystem, and communities.

In its first year, 50-plus Ghadan 21 initiatives were delivered by the Executive Committee, chaired by HH Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan. In response to global economic challenges of 2020, the Executive Council launched an economic stimulus package to fast-track key initiatives that are improving the ease of doing business and reducing the cost of living.
