What a privilege to have participated in the United Nations webinar to keep the momentum for Ocean action in preparation of the 2020 UN Ocean Conference, alongside Peter Thomson, United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for the Ocean.
Thanks for having us share our vision for a fostered ocean impact entrepreneurial support ecosystem.
We believe that a mature ocean-impact innovation support ecosystem is crucial to engage youth to support SDG14, naming challenges, incubators, accelerators, venture capital funds. There are ~20 organizations worldwide that have already supported ~400 ocean startups. Those support players work to enable and scale innovations that have the potential to deliver system level impact at a magnitude and pace matching those of the ocean crisis. There’s a unique opportunity to scale now pioneering innovation support platforms.
