Techstars and Eastern Pacific Shipping (EPS), a world leading ship management company, announced on the 31st that they are jointly launching a global MaritimeTech accelerator, the EPS MaritimeTech Accelerator Powered by Techstars. Based in Singapore, this new mentorship-driven accelerator program will be Techstars second accelerator in the sovereign city-state.
The EPS MaritimeTech Accelerator Powered by Techstars will accept applications from startups around the world and ultimately select 10 companies—including the most promising local and regional startups—to participate in the program’s inaugural class. The companies will gather in Singapore for an intensive three month program of research and development, mentorship, and collaboration at EPS headquarters at Millenia Tower in Singapore. They encourage applications from entrepreneurs focused disrupting the maritime industry with technologies related to regulations, fuel efficiency, vessel operations, digitalization, and other subthemes.
At this event, each startup will pitch its newly polished business to an audience of venture capitalists, corporate innovation leaders, and industry experts, with the goal of facilitating investment in the companies while broadening and energizing the local entrepreneurial community.
Applications for the EPS MaritimeTech Accelerator Powered by Techstars will open in April 2019 and the program will begin in November 2019.
