OceanLAB provides the industry's most tailored incubation for early stage, or pre-seed, maritime startup companies...

An incubator that's open all year round

The OceanLAB incubator is open all year round, and is not a residential programme. Our support is tailored to each unique startup, and provided as and when required during the startup journey.

We believe innovation has to be agile, and as such we welcome applicants all year round, with successful companies are enrolled immediately.

Fast paced & agile curriculum combined with access to Cleanship's existing industry network

At OceanLAB we don’t believe there is a “one size fits all” formula for startup incubation, which is why we tailor our support to each individual startup.

Each OceanLAB startup will work closely with our startup support team, to create a unique development curriculum, to help drive the business forward.

In addition, OceanLAB startups can all benefit significantly from our existing Cleanship network – be it access to resources, engineering support or our well established sales network – OceanLAB leaves no stone unturned in helping build your business.
