Braid Theory, Inc., the consulting group that proves collaboration works, announced they have signed a deal with AltaSea at the Port of Los Angeles to open a technology commercialization center at the new ocean technology campus. The repurposed shipping container, named Braid Space at Alta Sea, enhances efforts to develop historic Berths 58, 59 and 60 at the Port of Los Angeles as the epicenter for ocean related research and technology. Braid Space at AltaSea will join existing tenants, Catalina Sea Ranch and Dr. Robert Ballard’s Ocean Exploration Trust.
This deal solidifies Braid Theory’s mission to bring innovation to the forefront of the blue tech industry, getting startups out of the lab and into the marketplace. At Braid Space, the team of engineers-in-residence and business advisors will provide customized programs to assist technology entrepreneurs on their path to commercialization. Rooted in its own entrepreneurial beginnings, Braid Theory believes that forming strategic partnerships between early stage technology companies and industry collaborators is critical to furthering enterprise innovation.
“Being at the waters’ edge will allow ocean-focused entrepreneurs an unparalleled opportunity in Southern California,” said Ann Carpenter, CEO of Braid Theory. “It’s where industry meets innovation, and enterprise meets the ocean.”
The first initiative of Braid Space at AltaSea is an accelerator program designed to provide advanced technology to The Longest Swim expedition from Tokyo to San Francisco, in the name of science and sustainability. Braid Theory has a call for applications to support Ben Lecomte and his crew.
