Accelerator at Sea

The 2019 Ocean Solutions Accelerator program begins with five days of seminars and excursions aboard a Lindblad Expeditions vessel in southeast Alaska.

This year, entrepreneurs from the Ocean Solutions Accelerator 2018 and 2019 Cohorts were joined by seven SOA Ocean Leaders from four countries, creating a truly international gathering of people committed to ocean health and sustainability.
