OCEAN ENTREPRENEURS´ LAB and TEST PILOT

TOOL is the world’s first floating lab & shared resource for ocean entrepreneurs and change agents across ocean industries, sustainable solutions & tech.

Welcome onboard our mission to empower the next generation!
Intro film

The project is an MVP (pilot) aiming to form a creative and open co-creation arena – bringing actors together across communities and industries. We welcome startups, youth organizations, environmental actors, research & academia, as well as corporates, into our family of collaborators.

The lab will function as a complimentary resource for existing land-based startup hubs across industries, building bridges with other leading ocean clusters along the coast of Norway. The community can utilize it both for activities docked in the port, voyages and shorter trips.

The lab will also serve as a meeting place for relevant international actors visiting Oslo. And accommodate practical testing for participants of accelerator programs and youth/student programs focusing on ocean related opportunities.

ENERGY & WASTE TRANSITION

We believe that the ocean industries need to be completely emission free and waste free, regenerating life and resources in the ocean as part of the business models for the future. TOOL is an open canvas for testing ideas and working on radical innovation across the community, but we have identified some key prioritized areas where we welcome current and new family members to join:
