    This is a half day invite only workshop examining the tools needed to inspire the Greek and international start-up communities. The shipping and maritime space has a number of key challenges relating to efficiencies and values and has seen a number of successful start-ups emerge in recent years. This has begun to increase and as one of the key maritime hubs, the Greek Market is in a solid position to offer all actors the right opportunities to prosper and grow.

Participants at this seminar will be from companies and organisations keen to see the development of a dynamic effective maritime and shipping start-up community willing to work collaboratively towards industry goals.

    Greece is one of the biggest blue economies in the world. The maritime industry is undoubtedly the backbone of the national economy. With the increasing advent of globalization, in a world of limitless opportunities, in order to be better prepared to the future challenges, it’s important to adopt new behaviors: to think smart and long-term, supporting sustainable and innovative solutions and embracing initiatives that offer a fertile context for their generation and adaptation.

    BlueGrowth initiative, aims to inspire and support startups with innovative ideas relating to the blue economy, including shipping, tourism, fisheries, the marine ecosystem. We play our part to establish Greece as a maritime capital of the world, embracing and supporting innovation and sustainable growth in a changing entrepreneurial environment. To achieve this, it’s important to collaborate, share and build a resultative dialogue and strong relationships within the maritime ecosystem.

    BlueGrowth event is open to the public of Posidonia 2018 and certainly to anyone who is interested to attend. The attendance is free of charge.
