Ocean Innovation & Entrepreneurship
Ocean Innovation & Entrepreneurship

This course provides a hands-on approach to exploring innovation and entrepreneurship at the intersection of ocean science, technology, and business. Students form interdisciplinary teams to develop a startup idea, create a prototype, and pitch their solution to current ocean-climate challenges, guided by lectures, a mock advisory board, and guest speakers.
