Funding opportunities in the Rotterdam region
We4Sea is an innovative frontrunner with its roots in the Rotterdam region. The company can monitor the performance of any seagoing vessel remotely without the need to go aboard. Funding and help from the Energiiq energy-innovation fund meant they could turn their idea for making shipping more efficient, cleaner, cheaper and sustainable, into reality.
Springboard to the international market
Rotterdam has plenty to offer start-ups and scale-ups seeking growth opportunities. The regional innovation ecosystem is unique, especially when it comes to innovations that are or might be attractive to the maritime industry. The network of potential partners, investors and clients is just around the corner, with an open attitude to welcoming newcomers. Close cooperation between (regional) governments, knowledge institutions, financial institutions and the industry all nurture an ecosystem where groundbreaking ideas and products are created, tested and brought to reality. All this makes the Rotterdam region the perfect testing ground and springboard for maritime scale-ups seeking to enter the international maritime market.
