This Week's Highlights

Are you an entrepreneur or innovator with an idea for an oceans-baseed startup? Take part in the Ocean Startup Challenge!

NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.

From www.oceanstartupchallenge.ca/:

With the world’s longest coastline, globally renowned research facilities and experts, government programs and supports, and a steady flow of talent, Canada is the right place to start or grow a successful ocean tech company.

We’re looking for diverse entrepreneurs and innovators from rural, Indigenous and urban communities across Canada, and internationally, who have innovative solutions to ocean industry problems. The Ocean Startup Project launched the Ocean Startup Challenge to support individuals and teams who are developing technologies that have large market potential.

Submissions for the Ocean Startup Challenge are due on Friday, August 14.

A couple of information sessions have been held on the Challenge. You can watch the recording from our August 4 session and review our slide deck here: https://bit.ly/2EQw7Ap.

The Challenge needs applicants who want to make a positive impact on the growing ocean economy by solving industry challenges, primarily from the following areas:

  • Aquaculture
  • Fisheries
  • Healthy oceans and ecosystem services
  • Bioscience
  • Energy
  • Ocean transportation
  • Enabling technologies and data analytics

Innovators who apply to solve an ocean challenge with their technology solutions could gain:

  • one of up to 10 prizes of $25,000 CDN to prototype or develop their solution (and up to another $200,000 CDN later if they are finalists in the second phase of the Challenge)
  • access to a roster of engaged mentors and innovation leaders ready to guide innovators
  • training through foundational bootcamps and other virtual sessions
  • key resources, support and connections that innovators need to succeed, including sharing more than $18,000 in collective services and resources from in-kind sponsors
  • a curated experience to help them leverage Atlantic Canada’s extensive and supportive innovation ecosystem
