“BLUE Incubator & AltaSea will be USA's BlueTech bookends.” B. Zonis, CleantechOpen
The BLUE Incubator is the core entrepreneurial element of BLUE Institute Labs, PBC and was created in 2017 to: address gaps in "Blue" entrepreneurship; to expand the blue ecosystem; and most importantly to provide affordable and easily accessible access to in ocean testing, training, labs and services. The "BLUE Innovation Center" (or just "BLUE") will be the first BlueTech, water security & coastal resiliency hub on the US Eastern Seaboard with direct access to the Ocean and is currently in development to co-locate the BLUE Institute Labs, PBC and its sister non-profit the BLUE Institute. The "BLUE" is designed to serve the Blue Cluster of Academia, Government and Industry alongside start-ups & students and will offer shared collaborative on-sight services, co-working & office space, labs and reliable ocean access for testing, training, and teaching in a BlueTech and the wider blue economy ecosystem. During the facility development (currently going through development planning in Newport, RI and Plymouth/Boston, MA) the Blue Incubator will continue to assist the successful growth of BlueTech, Water Security, and the wider Blue Economy companies through the finest technical support, business growth, and investment opportunities - stay tuned for rollout of new BLUE programming such as our “Advanced Special Topics“ the "BLUE Excelerator," and the "BLUE Escalator*," an advanced low residency program in development for "post-prototype" Startups.
BLUE Institute & BLUE Institute Labs are mission driven for collaborative innovative solutions on clean water, climate resiliency, and healthy & secure oceans.
The Blue Incubator is the entrepreneurial core program of the Blue Institute Labs, PBC - a Public Benefit Corporation. The creation of our "solutions driven and collaborative innovation" ecosystem facilitates the best steps forward to ensure successful entrepreneurs, thriving businesses, and an environmentally and economically sound planet. Social Impact Investing is key to sustainable growth for both the "young" companies, and those in round A or B of investment.
We invite you to join us on our Blue journey. As a Public Benefit Corporation we have dedicated 10% of profits for scholarships and fellowships at the BLUE Institute - our sister non-profit 501c3 developing global hub for excellence in water education, research and community engagement, and home to the "BLUE Semester.” All donations to the Blue Institute would be greatly appreciated.
To complement our location in Plymouth, Massachusetts we are also in Newport, Rhode Island. We have a landing space at Innovate Newport while we seek a facility space to build out the first stages of the BLUE Innovation Center. Newport is a dynamic undersea BlueTech and Blue Economy ecosystem of industry, academia, the US Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC), and the NavalX Northeast Tech Bridge.
Over the past two years the BLUE Incubator, based in Plymouth Massachusetts, has worked remotely with eight diverse startups from BlueTech to the wider Blue Economy - six of which had founders who were women and/or people of color. We mentor with the region's premier Business Accelorators - Clean Tech Open and MassChallenge, and collaborate with the region's GreenTech & BlueTech ecosystem builders such as NECEC, District Hall/Venture Cafe Providence, ACTION Network, MTS, MOTN, and the Blue Innovation Symposium at Salve Regina University. We continue to attract the most innovative startup companies and the brightest minds from the "Triple Helix" of academia, industry, and government.
