1000 Ocean Startups
Ocean & Water


The 1000 Ocean Startups coalition brings together the global ecosystem of incubators, accelerators, competitions, matching platforms and VCs supporting startups for ocean impact. Our objective is to scale at least 1000 transformative startups by the end of the Ocean Decade to restore ocean health and achieve SDG14. We achieve our objective through (i) building synergies between ecosystem participants and (ii) telling the story of successes already achieved and the potential of innovation to regenerate Ocean health, to inspire investment in scaling now the ocean impact innovation ecosystem. As the coalition works to achieve its mission, it responds to the Transformations recommended by the Ocean Panel.
