Brainstorming Session

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!
