Exploring the opportunities in Africa’s blue economy

SOUTH AFRICA: International entrepreneurs, investors, scientists, businesses and leaders that are working towards creating a positive impact on our oceans will converge in Cape Town next month for the 2024 edition of Ocean Innovation Africa.

The three day event, which will take place from 20 to 22 February at the V&A Waterfront, offers a full programme that features a number of break-out sessions to include small scale fisheries, aquaculture, coastal community initiatives, opportunities for universities and more.

The exciting Ocean Innovation Africa pitch competition returns this year and will provide a space for ocean-impact start-ups to showcase their projects to potential investors as well as policy-makers and researchers.

The six finalists in this competition will be announced this week and the winners will be announced at the event. Previous winners in this competition include Seaweed Café, Ukwenza VR and Dracoss.

With an original programme format that includes  Pechu Kucha sessions to break the mould of power point monotony, Ocean Innovation Africa aims to address the issues of sustainable oceans’ economy and oceans’ conservation, and seeks to find solutions linking up to almost all SDGs in addition to SDG14 – Life Below Water.

Ocean Innovation Africa is a platform that showcases African ocean-impact initiatives and brings together international changemakers for the growth of an equitable and sustainable ocean economy in Africa. The annual summit convenes innovators, entrepreneurs, researchers, investors, industry-leaders, and policy-makers from Africa and abroad leading the way in development and adoption of sustainable ocean solutions.
