Blue Innovation Wheelhouse

Financial Support

This project will establish a Blue Innovation Wheelhouse to support innovation and entrepreneurship that increase the rate at which ideas, intellectual property, and research are translated into products, services, viable companies, and, ultimately, jobs. While focusing specifically on water-related or water-dependent ideas, the Wheelhouse will build regional capacity in the Blue Economy through proof-of-concept and commercialization assistance to innovators and entrepreneurs and through operational support for organizations that provide essential early-stage risk capital to innovators and entrepreneurs.
