The OECD estimates that the ocean economy globally will double from $1.5 trillion to $3 trillion by 2030.
Alaska is positioned to take advantage of this “blue” growth through proactive investment in a new pipeline of innovation and entrepreneurship.
The Blue Pipeline is designed to support innovative startups in an industry vital to Alaska’s economy. It is a program of the Alaska Ocean Cluster Initiative, a hub of resources and opportunities in Alaska’s blue economy. AOCI's mission is to advance Alaska's blue economy, creating long-term social and economic value in Alaska through a thriving ecosystem of innovation and entrepreneurship.
