  • Screening

    Our investment decision process includes several interviews where you will get to present yourself and your company and get to know our team. Interviews will contribute to our insight and assessment to team quality, impact potential, your product, business model, scalability & accelerator fit.

  • Due diligence

    Due diligence means understanding your organisation’s current situation and what is required in order to reach both business and technological milestones. The global potential of your company is also assessed.

    We additionally conduct a deep dive impact screening to assess the overall impact of your operations and how aligned and integrated it is with the company strategy.

    We invest in all the companies that take part in our accelerator program. The ticket size varies from € 150 000 – 500 000, which we invest in your company in return for equity. We do charge a program fee which covers the cost of running the accelerator, but this can be deducted from our investment.

    During the program you will get hands-on mentorship from top global subject matter experts, serial entrepreneurs, business leaders and investors as well as access to pilot customers, test environments and real data.

    The program runs for 3 months and ends with an exclusive event for active and ocean relevant investors, where where you will get the opportunity to pitch to impact investors from all over the world.
