            About us

            OceanHub Africa was launched in July 2019. It is a non-profit ocean-impact catalyst initiative, supporting ocean-impact ventures through acceleration programs (www.oceanhub.africa) and leading an international ocean-minded ecosystem (www.ocean-innovation.africa and co-leader of the Ocean Impact Innovation coalition in response to the HLP www.oceanpanel.org - which are part of as advisors - and curating the African Ocean Innovation action group of the World Economic Forum -UpLink platform).

            Our mission is to inspire and assist innovative impact start-ups and nurture an environmentally conscious and profitable economy that would effectively mitigate the oceans' overexploitation, pollution as well as the effects of global warming on the oceans. We are based in Cape Town, at virtually the crossroads of three oceans and home to a strong scientific (international standard marine sciences), technical (one of the largest tech hubs in Africa) and business skills (some of the best universities on the continent) ecosystem. The first acceleration programme was successfully completed last year in spite of the circumstances and saw 6 startups of different stages (prototyping to growth stage), technologies (digital to hardware) and industries (aquaculture/fisheries, shipping/ship-building, marine renewables/biotechnologies, coastal tourism/ocean-sports, awareness/education) graduating during the Ocean Innovation Africa Summit in Nov 2020.

            OceanHub Africa is supported by a range of partners such as WWF, Mission Blue, Dassault Systèmes, Amazon, Sigfox, French and African Diplomacies, Universities to name but a few. We all come together because we believe in the great - and untapped - potential of Africa's blue economy but we also see the threats of irresponsible ocean economic growth. We therefore strive to increase the development and adoption of new sustainable technologies and policies to place the continent at the forefront of a decidedly more sustainable ocean economy.
