Seed innovation and commercialization

Innovation is not complete until it gets to the market.  Scientists, researchers and innovators are increasing the impact of their work by commercializing their expertise into technology, products, and services to make an impact on the planet.  Sustainable development of ocean resources is enabled through innovative commercial ventures and these businesses will be a primary catalyst and solution to the world’s largest ocean sustainability problems. The Ocean Frontier Institute Seed Fund and ecosystem partners form the base of the innovation and commercialization pathway through aligned programs and funding to inspire, initiate, and invest in new ocean ventures.  Join the commercialization community making an impact.
