Sure Chill has been selected to be part of the ground-breaking Dubai Future Accelerators programme. The Dubai government-backed programme has chosen just 30 companies out of 2,500 entries from around the world to collaborate in creating a better future.
Already working with the world’s biggest brands to help solve their cooling challenges, Sure Chill’s unique cooling technology doesn’t need a constant power supply. It provides cooling for over 10 days without power in hot ambient conditions. The platform technology can be adapted to suit any cooling device, from cool box and domestic use to air conditioning and retail chillers.
Based in Cardiff, UK, Sure Chill’s unrivalled cooling performance has previously been commended for aiding vaccine delivery in developing countries, and received a $1.5 million ‘Grand Challenges’ award from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to improve the vaccine cold chain.
Since its launch in 2011, Sure Chill’s cooling technology is currently being used in over 40 countries. The invention is set to create a better future, and be developed across multiple sectors in both developed and emerging economies.
Dubai Future Accelerators program
The 12-week programme has been designed to identify emergent technologies and businesses with the potential to address the world’s current and future problems.
The world’s most innovative companies have been selected to address seven key challenges in healthcare, education, transportation, infrastructure, renewable energy and digital transformation.
H.E. Saif Al Aleeli, Chief Executive Officer, Dubai Future Foundation, commented: “With the Dubai Future Accelerators, our mission is to turn the future, which was once a theoretical concept, into a reality in which Dubai can position itself as a global leader. We are excited to see how some of the world’s most innovative companies and entrepreneurs collaborate with our government entities to create solutions that will transform the future of Dubai, and possibly the world”.
The company’s vice president Nigel Saunders said: “we are delighted that Sure Chill has been selected to take part in the Dubai Future Accelerator programme. By the end of the 12 weeks, we hope to announce a significant partnership within Dubai across multiple sectors, including government entities. The story of Dubai fits with Sure Chill’s big thinking and we are excited about the prospects; this is all about working on tomorrow’s world.”
