Business as usual is not an option. Change must be propelled by innovation. To fast-track the innovations urgently needed to save the ocean, we must tap into the wealth of creativity from youth leaders, social and technology entrepreneurs, and finance innovators passionate about ocean health. The world needs a facilitator to make the right connections and remove obstacles.
The Accelerating Ocean Innovation pillar helps enable the other pillars of the Friends of Ocean Action in support of the Sustainable Development Goal for a healthy ocean. We nurture and connect ocean innovators to influential networks in order to scale their solutions. Under this pillar sits UpLink Ocean. UpLink is an open innovation platform that creates bridges for entrepreneurs to connect to the investors, corporate partners, experts and governments they need to scale. We exist to unlock an entrepreneur revolution and drive systemic change for people and planet.
