Ocean Inspired Outdoor Gear
Maine has 3500 miles of coastline to explore, fish, kayak, sail, surf, and swim. It is a huge asset for our state’s outdoor economy and its rugged coast holds international prestige and attraction. Its diverse geography invites a broad spectrum of outdoors enthusiasts and is inspiring a boom in outdoor gear and equipment made in Maine. In this Entrepreneurship in the Blue Economy session, you'll hear from product manufacturers, you'll get to ask them questions, interact with gear, and network with folks who love being outdoors and on the ocean.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN THE BLUE ECONOMY
Entrepreneurship in the Blue Economy (EITBE) is an event series created by the New England Ocean Cluster to share the stories of ocean-focused entrepreneurs and project leaders in Maine. Each session is free to attend and includes a curated panel of speakers who share their own intimate and organic perspectives on the topic du jour. Created in 2019, the program’s intent is to convene an engaged audience to raise awareness, promote dialog, and facilitate connections amongst those interested in the region’s blue economy.
For 2022, the EITBE series has become a part of Transforming the Blue Economy (TBE), a purpose-driven collaboration created by the World Ocean Observatory, a 501c.3 non-profit, and the New England Ocean Cluster. The project endeavors to advance and modernize New England’s ocean-minded industries through education and community engagement; by bridging the gap between capacity and need; and by assisting in the creation of sustainable and innovative enterprises.
