OceanoAzul - a network of Business Angels - will attend this 3rd ATLANTIC STAKEHOLDER PLATFORM CONFERENCE, Workshop Strengthening Atlantic competitiveness: the opportunity of a Maritime Entrepreneurship Ecosystem Project.
Summary: The maritime world in 2030 will be a connected and digital one, bringing closer integration between people and software and hardware, in such a manner that could transform the way they operate.
In this new reality, the early identification of emerging technologies that will have significant value and impact on the commercial shipping, naval, and ocean space sectors will benefit policy- and decision-makers, enabling them to make the right investment decision at the right time.
The workshop will discuss the experience in driving a Maritime Entrepreneurship Ecosystem of the University of Cádiz, Business Angels Network “Océano Azul”, FuVeX and the University of Algarve. The aim is to strengthen the maritime start-up community by fostering relationships among academia, entrepreneurs and potential investors in the Atlantic Area. It will bring knowledge, methodology and experience in the different fields of a new maritime entrepreneurship ecosystem: promoting the entrepreneurial spirit and assisting maritime entrepreneurs to develop every aspect of their business plan. For a maritime start-up, each step should be as simple as possible and require the minimum investment possible.
