Africa's Ocean Innovation Summit

Ocean Innovation Africa Official Summit of
The Ocean Race Cape Town Stopover
February 2023

Ocean Innovation Africa is a platform that showcases African initiatives and brings together international entrepreneurs, investors, scientists, businesses and leaders that are working towards creating a positive impact on our Oceans.

We believe that innovations led by science, technology and entrepreneurship will provide the necessary leverage points to address the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG),  at the right pace and scale. By addressing the issues of sustainable Oceans economy and Oceans conservation, our event seeks to find solutions linking up to almost all SDGs in addition to SDG14 – Life Below Water.

The Ocean Race has been a champion of marine sustainability, going far beyond corporate responsibility in harnessing the race platform to advocate for ocean health. As part of the organisation’s “Racing with Purpose” philosophy, a Race Village is set up in each host city for the duration of the stopover to engage with local changemakers on enhanced commitments and actions to address threats to marine health.

We are proud to partner with The Ocean Race Cape Town Stopover as their official summit in Cape Town and excited for the opportunity to showcase the African ocean economy to a broader audience of ocean enthusiasts.
