We are proud to welcome the 9 companies who are part of the inaugural Eastern Pacific Accelerator powered by Techstars, based in Singapore, one of the world’s key maritime hubs! The founders join us from various parts of the world including Denmark, India, UK, USA and of course, from Singapore as well.
It has been an exciting ride working closely with Eastern Pacific Shipping (EPS) to identify the next generation of maritime tech companies who will address prime topics in digitalisation and transformation for the shipping industry, such as operational efficiency, fleet performance, security and crew welfare.
Techstars has seen many startups successfully tap into the power of partnerships and mentors to energize different industries. These partnerships play an important role in developing innovative solutions that address real market needs. Working with EPS to run the Eastern Pacific Accelerator powered by Techstars is critical in commercialising these solutions. And when that happens, all parties will benefit. As part of the accelerator, founders will work closely with various departments within EPS in developing solutions for commercial, technical, operations, crew management, and more! Furthermore, the companies have the opportunity to deploy their technology 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. as mentors to provide industry perspectives and guidance. The Eastern Pacific Accelerator powered by Techstars is positioned as a key contributor to the maritime industry’s innovation ecosystem for disruption.
