Launching Inclusion in the Blue Economy

Fall cohort commences September 2020, details on the spring 2021 cohort are upcoming

NEXT COHORT: SPRING 2021 

Inclusion in the Blue Economy is intended to support entrepreneurs by providing a dedicated workspace at the New England Ocean Cluster Hús, mentorship opportunities, and continuous access to a collaborative community. It is principally focused on women, people of color, and individuals from non-marine industries who are passionate about building responsible marine-related businesses. For Inclusion in the Blue Economy’s pilot cohort in the fall of 2020, the New England Ocean Cluster will welcome three entrepreneurs into the Hús thanks to support from the program’s Founding Sponsor, Bristol Seafood. Sponsored tenants will setup shop in the Hús and leverage their presence amongst vibrant Blue Economy entities as they further refine their ideas and grow their businesses. We're looking forward to expanding our group of collaborators for the Spring 2021 Cohort and will have announcements with application information in November.

Please contact us regarding the Spring 2021 Cohort.
