Applications Open for ACTION's Pre-Landing Program InterACTION Bluetech 2021

January 11th, 2021

The Bluetech 2021 Pre-Landing program is offered to international bluetech startups that are ready to initiate an expansion in the US in Massachusetts / New England, one of the main innovation ecosystems worldwide, or wish to leverage the knowledge and resources in the area and generate new business opportunities. InterACTION Bluetech 2021 will be part of an online series of bluetech events to be offered over the winter/early-spring. The program is run in partnership with the Blue Innovation Symposium, the Blue Innovation Center, and UMass Amherst Gloucester Marine Station, with participation from SeaAhead.

This program will connect International blue technologies and products with US commercial partners, testing facilities, and capital, and introduce companies to ACTION's incubator network for potential soft landing opportunities. International startups in aquaculture, shipping, marine robotics, offshore wind energy, defense, marine biotechnology, and others are invited to apply.

The Pre-Landing program uses the aggregated connection power of ACTION's committed partners to help international startups establish a first network in the US that could not be otherwise built without the support of local stakeholders. This program is sponsored by the U.S. Economic Development Administration.
