Waypoint

Commercialising emerging safety and risk technologies in the marine industry.

Why Waypoint?

Startup driven innovation is key to unlocking new technologies that can break through the plateau in improvement in industrial safety.

There is no lack of desire across the marine sector to use new technologies to improve safety and risk management but the majority of stakeholders are not properly set up to engage with early stage technology companies. Plus most early stage technology companies don’t have the right product, marketing or sales infrastructure in place to properly address the marine industry.

Waypoint is exclusively aimed at making emerging safety and risk technologies accessible and affordable for the whole industry while providing startups with a commercially viable route to scale in the marine market.

The Programme

Waypoint is a 12 week startup acceleration programme dedicated to the commercialisation of emerging safety and risk management technologies in the marine industry.

Proposition Development Sprint

Week 1-2

A series of workshops to establish what problem the technology should solve, what it competes against, how much stakeholders will pay for it, and how it should be implemented.

Market Development Sprint

Week 3-6

A dedicated marketing campaign to articulate the problem and its cost to the industry, publish thought leadership to build credibility, launch the product and capture leads.

Sales Development Sprint

Week 6-12

A sales campaign to activate leads through sales development and qualify opportunities, conduct client workshops and progress towards contracts.
