Scientists are always pitching innovative ideas to earn funding to advance the next scientific discovery, establish a strategic industry partnership, or receive funding to spinout and commercialize IP. The Seed Fund provides funding to accomplish all of these goals and this two-day workshop, facilitated by Permjot Valia and Path2Innovation, helps scientists improve their storytelling skills to create more impactful and targeted proposals to increase the chance of success.
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.
Since 2018, the OFI Seed Fund has provided over 100 projects with financial support helping to advance innovative ideas in research, commercial and social concepts relating to the ocean in such areas as engineering, biology, aquaculture, environment and earth sciences.View all past seed funds
