Call for Sponsors

Without our generous sponsors, The Yield Lab series' of successful nonprofit Accelerator Programs and Challenges would simply not exist. 

We need your help to build a

Global Impact-Driven Aquaculture Community.


Globally aquaculture desperately needs technology and data-driven solutions to improve the production, environment and supply chains that provide the world with the original protein... seafood.


Aquaculture is the fastest growing segment of the food industry. If agriculture and food is the last trillion-dollar industry in need of technology innovation, aquaculture is potentially the neediest recipient of investment dollars.

Industry experts predict aquaculture will change beyond recognition in the coming decade.  Producers harvesting vast volumes of fish and crustaceans will move out of polluted rivers and nearshore coastal sites, to indoor tanks and offshore cages built by experts in oil and gas-rig platforms.  The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization and scientists behind the EAT-Lancet report say aquaculture is one of the most efficient ways to supply more protein because fish and shellfish convert feed more efficiently than land-based animals. 

This Challenge provides Aquaculture Entrepreneurs with the chance to connect with the greater booming AgTech Investment community in any geography.

To address the pressing issues of Sustainable Aquaculture worldwide, we offer different collaboration options to our sponsors. Sponsoring The Global Aquaculture Challenge will place you hands-on at the epicenter of this fast growing industry, create or deepen your footprint in this ecosystem, while addressing this imperative to our viability on this planet. Opportunities for sponsorship range from branding your involvement and mentoring exciting new technologies, up to and including full access to the deal flow as well as co-selection of the finalists. 

Sponsors will have multiple impact opportunities during this 6-month Accelerator Program designed around several world-class conferences as well as culminating at a final pitch competition.

Your contribution will first and foremost benefit the innovators, in creating a stimulating and beneficial environment to help their innovation thrive and scale: opportunities to showcase their innovation in several world-class conferences, Prize money to propel innovations to the next level, investors outreach facilitation, technical / business / market in depth mentoring program to help them surpass their gaps, tailored development of partnerships to name a few.
