About the Blue w(AI)ve Accelerator:

In 2024, The Gulf of Maine Research Institute's Ventures arm partnered with Northeastern University’s Roux Institute to launch The Blue w(AI)ve Accelerator, a first-of-its-kind 16-week accelerator program focused on the intersection of two rapidly-emerging economic sectors: artificial intelligence (AI) and blue tech. This Blue w(AI)ve Accelerator, in partnership with NU's Institute for Experiential AI, supports seven early-stage companies leveraging AI for ocean-based solutions around the world.
