Applying startup's solution must be feasible, scalable, and solving real issues in the ocean sector and work towards improving ocean health.
With an ambitious team, enterprises must have a plan for generating revenue, potentially with initial traction of customers or investors already.
Throughout the programme, founders receive guidance from SOA’s community as they engage with mentors, partners, and potential funders to achieve their goals.
The Ocean Solutions Accelerator will also present founders with a rigorous curriculum that encourages personal development and executive training with a range of world-class facilitators and pitch coaches.
The programmes include virtual Demo Days, connecting entrepreneurs with more investors, mentors and industry experts.
Besides, SOA routinely provides opportunities to gain exposure from its extensive social media network and connections to industry events.
Brandon Levy, Programme Director, says,
“At one point, it’s humbling but also empowering, knowing that as individuals, entrepreneurs and leaders, we can match the challenge with our own ingenuity, and that’s really what SOA is all about.
We are a community of empowered change-makers who are doing what we think is important; what we know is important.”
