Maritime Accelerator 2019 now open for application!

How it Works

Maritime Accelerator is all about accelerating cross-company collaboration projects. We are looking for innovative global growth companies to partner up and to scale together with our partner corporations.
The goal of the Maritime Accelerator is to help growth companies to enter new markets and to get new venture clients from our partner corporations. Correspondingly we are supporting the partner corporations to utilise already existing new innovative solutions and technologies to be taken into use in agile environment.

Selected growth companies will be invited to a 3-month accelerator program. Each partner corporation will invite 3 to 5 growth companies to Turku, Finland to the 1st bootcamp to draft vision and feasibility of a joint goal. The best matches will continue to 2nd bootcamp to brighten the joint goals and to set milestones with their dedicated partner corporation with support from Avanto Ventures and Turku Business Region. During the 3rd bootcamp we will organise venture finals where the teams can present the joint projects to a wider maritime industry audience.

This year’s partner corportaions are Royal Caribbean, Meyer Turku and Rauma Marine Constructions.

Application period is until 11th August.
