Big Tech Project


Reimagine the future of trade

At DP World, we don’t respond to change – we think ahead and anticipate it.

The Big Tech Project is a first-of-its-kind challenge that brings ideators and innovators from the best universities across India and UAE to solve some of the most interesting challenges in the world of trade — using the technology of the future.

In our journey to explore the Metaverse, this year’s theme revolved around one single question:

The Big Tech Project

- Pradeep Desai, Chief Technology Officer, DP World
