Julie Angus, CEO of Open Ocean Robotics pitched her company in the “Women in Cleantech” competition, and was one of six successful candidates (out of 146 entries) to receive incubator support valued at $800,000. The program runs for
two and a half years, and is a collaboration between the Canadian government and Mars Discovery District. At the end of the incubator program, there will also be another (one in five chance) of receiving an additional 1,000,000 in funding. This support will hugely facilitate development, research, and the protection of our proprietary developments. It also includes “unprecedented” access to government labs, which tanks for testing boats, solar research facilities, and other useful research institutions.
