Turn to the BLUE ECONOMY for ever-expanding and entrepreneurial careers

Are you looking to re-engineer your career? Projected to be worth $3-trillion by 2030, the blue economy offers plenty of opportunities.

Now is the time to catch that next wave. Pivot your technology and engineering skills to take advantage of the exciting career opportunities ocean entrepreneurship offers.

Whether it’s solving problems in traditional ocean industries or focusing on solutions in the burgeoning blue tech and cleantech areas, starting up an ocean company has never had more potential. You’ll also discover countless outstanding support programs and organizations to help you succeed.

Opportunities include innovations in traditional sectors like oil and gas or fisheries and aquaculture, as well as in newer areas, such as data analytics, autonomous technologies, bioscience, lower-emission transportation and shipping, and much more.

Based on your insights and past experiences, you could offer creative solutions and services as an entrepreneur to corporations in traditional industries. After all, you witnessed firsthand the issues that the industry faces and you could be paid as a consultant on how to overcome those obstacles.

If you’re newer to ocean tech, you could bring your fresh perspectives to advance the blue economy or adapt terrestrial technologies for ocean applications.
