Investing in Our Oceans: Navigating Uncharted Waters

Mar 13, 2024

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

Deploying technology in the ocean is hard and risky. In fact, we know more about the surface of the moon than we do about the ocean floor on a planet that is 70% water. So why are these investors so invested in ocean technology? Join us as we explore why blue tech is a critical investment area for climate mitigation and resilience, clean energy, food security, and economic prosperity. We'll navigate how to work together to build an infrastructure of funding and support to bridge the gap between public funding and private capital, accelerating commercial solutions on an unprecedented timeline.
