17 Blue Biotech Startups Join The Global TOOL Map

Meet 17 groundbreaking solutions within the blue bio-based economy, now on TOOL Spawn! These are sustainable solutions made by using marine compounds in novel ways.

TOOL participated recently in the Blue Bio Value Acceleration Program of 2021 in Lisbon, Portugal. As a result, the 17 blue biotech startups that participated were introduced to TOOL and added to TOOL Spawn. Get to know them below!

Blue Biotech Accelerator

Launched in 2018, the Blue Bio Value Acceleration is a program for Portugal-based and international startups in the marine bio-economy sector. The program aims to support entrepreneurs with innovative ideas, develop high-quality projects worthy of investments and create global companies within the marine bio-based economy.

Blue Biotech Solutions

Marine biotechnology is a knowledge generation and conversion process: it unlocks access to biological compounds and provides novel uses for them. By exploring and harnessing marine materials, new benefits in areas far from the marine are likely to be found (Marine IE).

These sustainable ocean solutions can reduce pollution at sea, using by-products of marine species in new ways, feeding a growing population and preserving biodiversity.

The 17 biotech startups in the Blue Bio Accelerator have prototypes or have already launched their solutions and are looking for funding opportunities to scale and grow.

Meet these changemakers on our global map and matchmaking platform, TOOL Spawn.
