Weaving together these entrepreneurs along with industry influencers and corporate partners, we accelerate the adoption of transformative technology, drive market growth, and create profitable collaborations.
The World Bank defines the blue economy as “the sustainable use of ocean resources for economic growth, improved livelihoods, and jobs while preserving the health of ocean ecosystems.”
Bluetech is best described as a cross- and multi-disciplinary ecosystem, which seeks to solve problems related to the ocean, marine and maritime sector. It broadly encompasses many of the same technologies found in sectors such as agriculture and food technology; water and energy; biotech and life sciences; aerospace; construction and infrastructure; and transportation and logistics. Adjacently, those technologies can be broken down into environmental, atmospheric sciences, chemistry and materials, tourism, construction, robotics, automation, goods movement, aquaculture, bioenergy, cellular agriculture, and many more. Bluetech solutions seek to address issues related to degraded ocean resources, protection of ocean ecosystems, and mitigation of the effects of climate change.
