The Blue Venture Forum is a program that connects existing blue technology companies, investors, and resource providers with emerging blue technology firms. This first-of-its-kind forum will assist corporates (primes) to identify new technologies for partnership or acquisition, help scale-up companies to connect with funding and resource partners, assist investors to connect with investable blue technology firms, and provide start-ups with access to experienced mentors. 

Based at Innovate Newport, a technology incubator located in Newport, RI, The Blue Venture Forum will be dedicated to creating a global community that fosters and supports entrepreneurs and innovators in blue technology, ocean-related enterprises, and related deep tech verticals, by holding monthly meetings, featuring case studies, pitch contests, and key speakers. These programs will be delivered virtually and, as soon as possible, in a blended face-to-face format from Innovate Newport.
