We need more mentors and experts
– Being a mentor is often just as rewarding and useful for the mentor who also establishes new contacts and opportunities, says Bjarte Fagerås in GCE Ocean Technology. He needs experts and mentors for more than than 80 start-up companies undergoing the AspBAN acceleration programme.
AspBAN is an EU funded partnership to stimulate innovative businesses and foster a sustainable blue economy around Atlantic ports and Bjarte Fagerås who is Senior R&D Advisor in GCE Ocean Technology is recruiting mentors and experts to support these startup-companies.
The startup companies offer technology and services for ports and other infrastructure around ports.
As a mentor for these companies you will access a pool of interesting start-up companies in Europe that you can build valuable connections with according to Fagerås who is also a mentor in the programme himself.
If you would like to learn more or/and become a mentor of the AspBAN programme please contact Bjarte.firstname.lastname@example.org
About the AspBAN project
The AspBAN project is related to the Atlantic Action Plan 2.0:
- Pillar 1: Ports As Gateways And Hubs For The Blue Economy
- Goal 1: Ports as gateways for trade in the Atlantic
- Goal 2: Ports as catalysts for business
There is a need and an opportunity for EU Atlantic Ports to diversify the revenue sources of their business models, by acting not only in the core areas of cargo and passenger handling, but also being the main playgrounds or ecosystems for the development of new blue businesses and of a sustainable ocean economy.
GCE Ocean Technology is partner in the EU funded Atlantic Smart Ports Blue Acceleration Network (AspBAN) project, that aims to support European start-ups in the ocean industries with accelerating and scaling up sustainable solutions for the blue economy.
