Six Blue Founders Join Start-Up Yard’s OceanTech Pilot Program

Friday, December 2, 2022

Join us in celebrating six ocean technology founders that have been selected to test their novel solutions to some of the ocean’s biggest challenges as part of the OceanTech Pilot Program.

The six start-ups are splitting $50,000 of non-dilutive funding to help launch their pilots and will have access to mentorship and services from SEATAC (NSCC’s Technology Access Centre, dedicated to advancing the ocean sector through applied research and innovation services). The companies will also receive a six-month placement at Start-Up Yard at COVE.
