The House


The New England Ocean Cluster House is an innovation hub and incubator for companies that draw on the ocean as a resource for their products, services, and ideas. At the core of the NEOC is the idea of intentional networking—strengthening connections between people, businesses, and entrepreneurs to create a community of talented individuals committed to each other’s success.

Coffee Shop Model

• • •  The design of the House is deeply influenced by the open and social nature of a coffee shop.  Incorporating such a model facilitates a workplace where collaboration, joint strategic planning and knowledge sharing occur often and organically.  Having access to like-minded entrepreneurs encourages growth while also providing a broad cross section of industry experience to draw from.  To put it simply, in the House, no one is ever flying solo. 

CREATIVE INNOVATION

• • •  We continuously remind ourselves that there is simply no formula for innovation.  A product or service can be created from scratch or it can be molded out of that which lies beneath our collective noses.  In the House, progressive thinking is encouraged and supported by all which results in a more comprehensive and efficient development process.  In essence, we emphasize using synergy to realize greater opportunity.
