We are looking for ideas as powerful as the ocean

Blue Bio Value is dedicated to bringing ocean-based, sustainable solutions to a new, blue bioeconomy. We scale up marine bio-based projects and ideas, fostering science-based and biotech innovations to design a better world.

The ocean can be an engine to decarbonise, not just ocean industries, but global economy as a whole. Where the Industrial Revolution represented a paradigm shift, now we need an Environmental Revolution.
Tiago Pitta e Cunha, Oceano Azul Foundation CEO

We can only prosper in the future if we are able to find new business models that ensure a positive impact on people and the planet alongside financial returns. Blue Bio Value is a fast track to transform these promising solutions into successful startups and companies, by unlocking the potential of the natural capital of the ocean.
