Waypoint 3: Maritime Risk

Applications have now closed for Waypoint 3. Watch this space for news on future Waypoint programmes, and to let us know if you’d be interested in mentoring.

What is Waypoint 3?

Waypoint is our programme where we accelerate cutting edge technology companies into the maritime market.

Waypoint 3: Maritime Risk will take a cohort of 3 technology companies focused on tackling major challenges in maritime risk through the programme.



Waypoint is a good fit for:

  • Startups developing technology that has the potential to scale to significantly improve safety or risk management in the maritime industry.
  • Through the programme we will work with you to take your solution to the maritime market. This means that ideally, you will have conducted a successful proof of concept test, paid or unpaid, in a marine industrial environment. We’re also open to hearing from companies who have experience in other sectors, and have a clear idea of how they would add value in a maritime context.
  • Startups who would receive value from support to commercialise and scale their technology within the industry and are willing to commit to a focused programme of mentoring, client presentations and business development.

Participants receive:

  • £25K to be used towards securing projects
  • Access to a network of expert mentors
  • Exposure to our ecosystem of 6000+ maritime clients

This program is equity free.

You will enter our standard Waypoint Agreement which will include the terms and activities of your participation in the programme.
