The Iceland Ocean Cluster’s mission is to create value by connecting together entrepreneurs, businesses, and knowledge in the marine industries. To serve this mission we provide a range of services and invest our resources in new marine spin-offs and projects.
We operate the Ocean Cluster House in Reykjavík, home to entrepreneurs, startups and growing businesses in the marine industry. We also assist new businesses by offering business plan advice, helping them expand their networks and connecting them to investors.
Building on deep industry insights, practical experience, knowledge of emerging trends, threats and opportunities our expert team delivers high quality analysis, findings and recommendations to marine businesses, startups and institutions.
Our business experts and economists use a business-oriented approach to gathering data, harnessing its relevance and using it to create insights and guidance. Our research has focused on seafood, byproduct utilization, marine biotech and other marine industries.
We operate a powerful cooperation platform (business cluster) with select member businesses. Membership provides businesses with opportunities to interact closely with the industry, partake in events, global projects, new projects and spin-off business development.
