COAST Talks: Fueling Oceantech Innovation – Accessing Funding for Startups

COAST Talks: Fueling Oceantech Innovation – Accessing Funding for Startups

Thursday, September 28, 2023 (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM) (PDT)


British Columbia generated more new oceantech startups in 2022 than any other Canadian province, an indication of how quickly the ocean and marine sector is growing. Seed funding is vital if these early-stage entrepreneurs are to thrive, but how and where can they access it?

We explore the different levels and options of funding available, from diluted to undiluted, private to public investment, and how startups can best position themselves to take advantage of the opportunities available to fuel their innovations and get their product to market.
