What a great privilege for C-LOG to be selected as one of the 9 finalists to take part in the Eastern Pacific Accelerator (EPA) powered by Techstars!
Initiated to drive innovation and support entrepreneurial spirit in one of the oldest industries in the world, Eastern Pacific Shipping (EPS), an industry-leading ship management company and Techstars, a worldwide network helping entrepreneurs succeed, have jointly launched the world’s first global MaritimeTech accelerator.
Given the fact that the maritime world still encounters difficulties in embracing and leveraging the power of new technologies, the EPA represents a key contributor to the industry’s innovation ecosystem for disruption. The aim is to support and energize maritime tech companies as they address the challenge of digitalization and transformation of the shipping industry by means of technology-led solutions related to operational efficiency, fleet performance, security and crew welfare.
A powerful partnership providing access to a global network of industry players and operational insights
Selected from a pool of hundreds of applicants out of 67 different countries, C-LOG is more than grateful and proud to participate in the programme’s inaugural class of 9 start-ups. This means we will get to meet investors, industry experts and leading mentors helping us to gain traction and hit milestones. Furthermore, we will have the special opportunity to deploy our technology and platform on EPS’ diverse fleet of over 150 vessels while working with numerous maritime stakeholders from other shipping companies, trading firms, ports, regulators, class societies, etc.
We cherish this incredible opportunity to accelerate our business and be part of a 3-months-programme agenda of research and development, mentorship, and collaboration kicking off in November 2019 in the world’s maritime capital Singapore. In February 2020, the accelerator will culminate in a Demo Day where we will pitch our solution to an audience of top investors, multinationals, government partners and other ecosystem players. We’re excited for the upcoming journey!
