Application Deadline Countdown
- Closure 11 April 2021 -
We offer 8 innovators the chance to participate in a non-residential and non-dilutive accelerator program. Successful applicants will receive relevant subject-matter expert mentoring and face off in front of potential investors to win cash and other prizes at the final pitch.
The invitation is open to innovators from industry, academia and public institutions:
Early-stage to late early-stage startups
Innovators in research organizations, public and private, NGOs
Innovators in seafood farming companies or seafood industry
Innovators in supply chain, compliance, and public policy
Technologists who have an application relevant to aquaculture
The program typically lasts 6 months. Aside from the ongoing mentorship, there will be opportunities where the cohort will present to potential investors and industry stakeholders.
We leverage our network of global partners, mentors and advisors. At the final face off for prizes, the teams will pitch their technologies to the blue-ribbon panel of judges and to the market.
At the final pitch, a panel of Judges will select the winners, determined by advisors and sponsors, and award them with prizes as provided by the Challenge and the Sponsors. The Challenge offers a total of cash and in-kind prizes exceeding USD 400,000, including a top prize of USD 100,000 and regional prizes.
This is a tentative schedule. Depending on the COVID-19 situation worldwide, this schedule could be updated.
