About Us

We are an inclusive global community and platform, for ocean caring people, innovators and entrepreneurs to connect, learn, and collaborate, to shape our community and act in the best interest of the ocean.

We provide learning programs and knowledge, to increase ocean awareness, support choices in daily life, and ultimately as the foundation for innovation.

We invite early stage innovators and entrepreneurs to join, develop solutions and progress in our annual  Ocean Community Challenge

Focusing on early teams and ideas, we fill a void in the ocean innovation ecosystem for early innovators and ideas with impact potential that are not yet accelerator- or investor ready.

A collaborative and united community transforming ideas into solutions that protect the ocean and contribute to thriving coastal communities and a prosperous blue economy.
