Connecting executives with maritime start-ups
Launching Q2, 2016
What is it?
We are currently building the infrastructure to connect the experience and network of senior executives with new and promising maritime start-ups.
The maritime industry needs modern solutions to change the course of present financial results. Yet, new ideas and start-ups struggle penetrating the maritime market.
There are many aspiring companies out there, from hardware innovators – such as improved fuel meters or fuel optimizing valves – to leading tech in big data, tracking and connectivity. However, the lack of network and capital acts as a barrier for reaching potential customers and future users, and thus benefit the maritime industry.
How it will work
In practise, the start-up teams will be showcasing their product concepts, making a specific ask for knowledge, network, and/or capital.
Executives will be receiving and assessing information about relevant projects, and ultimately decide whether or not they want to be a part of it, as investor, advisor and / or board member. This is not meant to conflict with current employment, but provide a VC type involvement that as much benefits the corporation.
Let us know if you want to hear more
We are presently building the network of executives and start-ups, along with legal, IT and processes to support this professionally.
If you are a maritime senior, or a start-up and wish to be on our list to learn more – you can let us know by sharing your name and contact details on below mail:
Afterwards, you will receive updates on our progress and an offer to become part of the project when it is finalized.
