Today’s initiative brings together start-ups focused on solving climate and business challenges with a range of investors eager to fund the transition to a sustainable ocean economy.
In an innovative take on investment proceedings, the event focuses on “reverse pitching”, whereby venture capitalists, angel investors, debt providers, corporate backers and established industry names pitch their own businesses to start-ups, rather than vice versa.
Pitchers confirmed so far include, amongst others, Nysnø, Saga Pure, Norselab, ArcTern Ventures, Hafslund Eco, Startup Norway, The Factory, Startuplab, DNV Ventures, Gründergarasjen, Fire A, and, of course, Katapult Ocean.
As well as the open tables, a “community lunch” will provide opportunities for further networking and business discussion.
The day ends with DNV and Fearnleys announcing the results of their Nor-Shipping Hackathon.
