What is the aim of this initiative?

The BlueBio Roadshow initiative includes participation in the Tech Tour Ocean (TT Ocean), a Venture Forum that offers a unique opportunity for the most innovative entrepreneurs to meet and present themselves before active international investors and companies seeking investment and partnerships.

Due to the restrictions imposed by COVID-19, start-ups were given the opportunity to participate in TT Ocean 2020 in a digital format and participating in person at TT Ocean 2021 in Norway.

The Tech Tour Ocean 2021 event takes place in the city of Bodø, Norway, between 5 and 6 October 2021, bringing together 30 start-ups in the blue economy.

The programme is designed to help start-ups develop technology solutions within the food, transport and marine-sourced energy sectors.

The event promotes the formation of strategic partnerships and the search for investment through contact between entrepreneurs and investors, corporations and government experts.

The five Portuguese start-ups that BLUEBIO ALLIANCE, promoter of the initiative, is taking to the event are:

  • UNDERSEE
  • HORTA DA RIA
  • ÍNCLITA SS
  • LUSALGAE
  • MADEINSEA

The initiative will also bring Norwegian partners/investors to participate in the Final Pitch Event of the Blue Bio Value acceleration programme (Lisbon) in 2021, if possible, in person, and get matchmaking sessions between Norwegian partners/investors and Portuguese companies.
