BlueInvest 2018 - Brussels, Belgium

Square Brussels Meeting Centre - Mont des Arts/Kunstberg, B-1000 Brussels

Blue Invest 17th May 2018: a match-making event that brings together innovators and the financial community to boost the economic potential of the ocean while protecting its marine resources.

The OECD projects that the global maritime economy will grow at twice the rate of the mainstream economy by 2030. For Europe, this would mean 10.8 million jobs and nearly 1 trillion euro in turnover. That's why we need to act to stay competitive on the global market.

 

How to take advantage of this potential? How can technology and creativity meet finance?

  • An exciting pitching contest for innovators in front of a panel of top investors
  • Inspiring speakers who will share their experiences and tips
  • Personalized and pre-arranged bilateral meetings for investment and project development opportunities
  • Networking among potential clients, investors, innovators, support service providers and policy makers.

Who should attend?

  • Innovators with projects that can have a positive impact on the health of the ocean and boost its economic potential
  • Blue economy innovators who want to pitch to Europe
  • Business, especially SMEs, start-ups and scale-ups
  • Business accelerators
  • Public and private financial institutions investing or willing to invest in the blue economy
  • Maritime clusters
  • Anyone with a keen professional interest in the subject

Registration closes 10 May 2018
