Ocean Hub Africa is an African based non-profit initiative aiming at providing a platform where entrepreneurs, blue economy players and ocean-lovers can connect, collaborate, and access the resources they need to successfully leverage the untapped economic potential of our oceans in a sustainable manner. The Hub's ambition is to place Africa (via Cape Town) at the forefront of a decidedly more sustainable ocean economy, by shaping better human/ocean interactions through the development of innovative impact businesses and raising awareness from the greater public. By gathering the main actors of this ocean economy (research centres & universities, corporations & small businesses, foundations & investors, etc.) we hope to spark interest and inspire more innovative entrepreneurs towards this booming yet threatened economy. We chose Cape Town for its ideal location (oceans' crossroad), the strong scientific, technical and business skills available locally, and the appropriate infrastructure to support businesses.
