The world’s largest startup event, Expand North Star 2023, is set to showcase groundbreaking Indian startups in Dubai from October 15 to 18, 2023. This event, hosted by the Dubai Chamber of Digital Economy, is a global gathering of innovative tech startups from more than 100 countries, with a special focus on Indian entrepreneurs.
With over 1,800 startups from around the world participating, including 200 from India, the event aims to boost global venture capital investment and serve as a launchpad for Indian startups looking to expand internationally.
Indian Innovations Take Center Stage
One of the standout startups at Expand North Star is Noval Sustainability, which is introducing “DE-Carbon,” an innovative animal feed protein made from recycled waste. Founder Siva Sanker explains that DE-Carbon significantly reduces the environmental impact of the carbon-heavy feed and meat industries. With this pioneering approach, Noval Sustainability aims to tap into a potential $500 billion industry by incorporating just one percent of alternative proteins into animal feed.
Another exciting Indian startup, Tuttifrutti Interactive, is set to revolutionize the gaming industry. Their Sophia’s Adventures fantasy-themed game, utilizing Unreal 5 Nanite technology, is expected to make a splash in the $300 billion gaming market. With plans for an official launch on Sony PlayStation and VR2 markets, Tuttifrutti Interactive anticipates massive growth, aiming for revenues of $80 million by 2028.
Keynote Speakers and Growth Roadmaps
Expand North Star’s conference program features unicorn founders who will share insights into their journeys to global success.

Fostering Economic Ties and Investment Opportunities
The substantial Indian presence at Expand North Star 2023 coincides with growing bilateral trade and investment opportunities between the UAE and India. Under the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement, the UAE and India plan to double the value of non-oil trade from 2023 to 2030, reaching $100 billion. Dubai Chambers reports that 30 percent of startups in Dubai are Indian-owned, and Indian firms have created more than one million jobs in the UAE.
