About the event

Join us on April 3rd for the relaunch of The Sea Change Makers Series - featuring panels of founders Seaworthy Collective has supported in its startup programs! Our first panel of 2024 will focus on Catalyzing Coastal Resilience, a conversation encompassing solutions addressing storm surge, sea level rise, beach erosion, coastal blue finance, and more.

Alex Berkowitz, is the founder and CEO of Coastal Protection Solutions, which specializes in patent-pending easily deployable systems that mitigate coastal flooding and protect communities against the threat of climate change. Their main patent-pending invention is a system called the Wavebreaker™ which acts as a wave "speedbump" to decrease the height and velocity of waves mitigating the damage to life and property in coastal communities from a major storm.

Anele Makhwaza is the founder and CEO of Igugu Global, which focuses on solving a fundamental problem- a gap in climate information available to financiers to allocate capital to more green outcomes by providing a platform that empowers companies to self-assess, manage and disclose climate-related financial risks. This drives more companies to market, accelerating adaptation.

Blayne Ross is the co-founder and CEO of ShoreLock, an innovative beach erosion treatment that aids in maximizing a beach’s capacity to dewater quickly and keep sand in its place. Their revolutionary technology utilizes recycled sargassum and naturally occurring organic material to stabilize the beach. This environmentally friendly compound enables the sand to reestablish natural cohesion and allows the beach ecosystem to thrive at its full capacity.
