Who We Are
The Sustainable Ocean Alliance is a global community of youth, entrepreneurs, and experts in their field, all collaborating to solve the greatest challenges facing our ocean
What started in 2014 in a Georgetown dorm room has turned into the largest youth-led network of ocean allies in the world. Reaching people in 165 countries, SOA was born to accelerate solutions, cultivate leaders and create a community that will restore the ocean in our lifetime.
Our vision is to restore the health of the ocean in our lifetime.
We'll achieve that through our mission: to bring next-gen leaders, entrepreneurs, advocates, mentors, and partners together to create solutions for the largest challenges facing our ocean.
SOA has curated the world's largest network of young ocean leaders, entrepreneurs, and ocean health advocates.
We've accelerated 29 companies since 2018, who have gone on to raise over $25M in follow-on funding. We've built a presence in 165 countries, where we reach over 5,000 leaders globally. We currently have 64 Hubs in 44 countries, and have funded 100+ grassroots initiatives to date.
