Ocean Exchange February 28, 2019

As a founding member of the Marine Research Hub, MIASF is pleased to announce that Savannah Ocean Exchange, a non-profit organization that has awarded $1.2 million in funding to start-up companies that offer marine-related solutions to identified problems and challenges, has partnered with the Marine Research Hub and will transition its annual competition to Fort Lauderdale beginning in 2019. With two $100,000 awards, the Orcelle and the Neptune, plus a $10,000 collegiate award, the Ocean Exchange and the Marine Research Hub create a pipeline of university research, economic development, and start-up funding to support the commercialization and monetization of marine research using a market-based approach to solve some of the world’s biggest challenges. We look forward to welcoming the finalists and voting delegates to Fort Lauderdale this October. For more information contact kelly@miasf.org.
