AUSTRAL FISHERIES LAUNCH ‘START-UP ACCELERATOR’
Austral Fisheries launch ‘Start-Up Accelerator’ to support next wave of sustainable seafood innovators. Perth-based Australian fishing company Austral Fisheries is supporting the next wave of sustainably-focused seafood innovators, launching a 12-week “accelerator” programme alongside social innovation hub StartSomeGood.
The programme, titled ‘Seafood For Good,’ aims to find a solution to increase consumer knowledge and preference for sustainable seafood.
Four business-to-consumer solutions will be selected to participate in the free accelerator over a period of 12 weeks.
These participants will be guided by leading experts in innovation, customer development and sustainable seafood to create innovative solutions to help bridge the path towards a more sustainable future for the seafood industry.
The programme guides include David Carter; CEO of Austral Fisheries, Tom Dawkins; CEO of StartSomeGood, Allen Haroutonian; Founder of Blue-X and Nick Chiarelli from Ocean Impact Organisation.
At the end of the accelerator, the two most commercially viable solutions will receive funding and support from Austral Fisheries as a key partner and supplier to launch their respective solutions.
Interested parties can apply to join the free Seafood For Good accelerator programme.
The programme is open to start-ups, new products from existing companies or non-profits, with applications closing on May 27 AEST.
