Our Oceans Challenge, acceleration platform for new ocean ventures, launched a new program cycle on December 1st. This new edition follows up on the first program which took place in 2014. During this first round Our Oceans Challenge posted two ocean challenges on an online acceleration platform in order to mobilize both entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs to develop solutions. Nearly 463 participants, consisting of entrepreneurs, offshore experts and individual experts, contributed a total of 88 working concepts. A selection of participants received a short acceleration program to develop their business plans and five ventures presented themselves to a crowd of investors and industry partners during the Demo Day.
Together with a new group of partners, Our Oceans Challenge launched a new cycle with new challenges around topics such as noise- and waste management and big data. Do you have an innovative business concept or want to contribute to making them happen? Join the online platform here.
Outside Inc. co-founded our Oceans Challenge in 2014 and is now partner in executing the new program.
