Venture Studio / Incubator
Co-Create the Future of Ocean Innovation
Seaworthy Collective's flagship Venture Studio / Incubator program activates our community by providing accessible opportunities for anyone with a passion for making ocean impact and climate impact to contribute to solutions across any of our 3 verticals.
Our approach is unique. We build cohorts that consist of two types of program participants: aspiring founders co-creating new startups, and current founders growing existing startups. As the first BlueTech venture studio in the United States, we work to not only co-create individual solutions, but also build systems of solutions.
Over a 12-week sprint, we catalyze traction and collaboration among our cohort participants by providing access to network connections, talent, capital, and more. The program culminates in our community’s biggest event of the year, the startup showcase!
Founder Mentorship Program
Year-Round Founder Support Program
After spending the past 2 years supporting 20 startups and 48 founders over 2 cohorts in our Venture Studio program, we started 2023 seeking to both streamline and reinforce the value we create in our startup programs while making it more accessible.
The Founder Mentorship Program is designed to provide bespoke support for each startup on a monthly basis, while equipping participants with critical business fundamentals through curriculum provided by partners covering topics including market validation, pitch development, marketing strategy, and more.
