Creative minds and businesses collaborate to champion Marine ideas

A global centre of excellence for marine, Plymouth is one of the largest clusters of expertise in Europe and consequently provides the ideal location for innovation and growth in this sector.

With an ever-growing network of organisations, entrepreneurs and emerging talent, combined with an exceptional track record in delivering engaging, high-value events, the Plymouth Startup Weekend is back this November with a question for aspiring entrepreneurs and creative thinkers: what innovative Marine themed ideas have you got?

In collaboration with partners and experts across the strong marine industry base in the South West, this event will support and enable new and innovative marine based ideas to emerge and develop in Plymouth.

Organised by the University of Plymouth, as part of the iMayflower project, and part of the globally renowned Techstars Startup Weekend movement, this year’s event is focused on solving problems and filling gaps related to marine technology, renewables, cruise and leisure to boatbuilding, shipping, marine engineering and more. At the same time supporting the flourishing entrepreneurial community in the city and connecting businesses with entrepreneurs and talent.

Alongside this event, the Plymouth Startup Weekend team are looking to work with more innovative leaders and organisations across the South West, and beyond, in order to support some of the region’s brightest and boldest entrepreneurs and champion the strength of Marine in the South West.
