Aquaculture Funding Opportunity

From AgFunder, May 7:

Hatch 4.0 accelerator is open for innovators who can bring sustainability to aquaculture
Hatch is inviting startups to apply for the fourth cohort of its aquaculture-focused accelerator program.
It’s looking for eight to 10 companies from anywhere in the world, at seed or pre-seed stage, to join the 15-week program. Applicants should have a team of at least two people who can communicate in the English language, are able to dedicate 100% of their time to the business, and who have at least developed an initial proof of concept.

Successful applicants will get $130,000 funding — $75,000 will be in cash, with the remainder in kind to cover costs of the program — plus access to Hatch’s mentor network of over 100 experts from the corporate, science, technology, and entrepreneurial fields.

Interested teams need to be working on innovative, scalable, and sustainable tech solutions for the aquaculture space. That means startups working with aquaculture applications in mind, as well as teams currently focussed on other areas who feel their tech may have compelling uses in aquaculture....MUCH MORE
