JOIN OUR EFFORTS TO

massively improve the sustainability of aquaculture

BY LAUNCHING SCIENCE COMPANIES.
1 in 7 people on earth rely on aquatic species as an important part of their diet and/or income. Today, 90% of all fish stocks are either overfished or fished at their maximum capacity, causing untold damage to marine and freshwater ecosystems. Meanwhile, aquaculture which is the fastest growing segment in the entire agriculture sector, presents a major opportunity to meet growing food security challenges, but it is generally hindered by poor environmental performance which is exacerbating the planet’s biodiversity crisis.
Transforming how we obtain fish, crustaceans, mollusks and seaweed requires the development of methods that can provide profitable calories, promote healthy ecosystems, and restore natural value and animal stocks. A Blue Revolution is on the horizon.
OUR OFFER
Your role will start as a Founder within DSV under our unique framework for venture creation and transition to becoming part of the founding team of one of the companies which will emerge from it. We are aiming to launch at least three new ventures in this space and you will have a chance to work with us to make that happen (and own an equity stake in each one of them).
There’s up to £500k of investment from DSV alone, and at least £100k in grant funding, plus the further opportunity to carry out 6 figure proof of concept work. In addition to the investment, we also provide a monthly stipend to all our Entrepreneurs in Residence to support their time transitioning into building an early stage company.
No prior idea or IP required.
