The Ocean covers 71% (point71) of the earth's surface. It provides us with immense amounts of food and oxygen, and sequesters carbon dioxide from the atmosphere for thousands of years (not just decades, as trees do). It may be the only real solution to the problems we face. Working at sea is hard, so those who can do it can create sustainable advantage.
This meetup is to create startup businesses using technology to solve Ocean problems, profitably. Technology like the Internet of Things, satellites, energy harvesting.
Starting with a twist around Auckland, New Zealand but an eye on the global prize.
The meetup lets us pool contacts, skills and materials to create exceptional outcomes.
