About the Program:
The 2022 Blue Tech Sprint is a 6-week program for startups to accelerate the tools and technologies that could transform how we understand and leverage the power of the ocean. The maritime industry presents innovators with huge economic opportunity and the opportunity to meaningfully address climate change, protect our coastal resources and bolster our defenses.
The six-week sprint program will be broken into three distinct modules designed to offer a wide range of industry perspectives, customer acquisition, and an understanding of the funding landscape.
– Module One, Experts in Blue Tech will discuss the sector and why high-impact startups are critical to pushing innovation forward.
– Module Two will focus on Blue Tech Opportunities, as we hear from successful founders and leaders in government who are successfully navigating the blue frontiers.
– Module Three, Funding Blue, is when founders will immerse themselves in discussions with blue investors and DOD and SBIR experts to better understand both equity financing and non-dilutive funding options for their solutions.
