2022 Ocean Pitch Challenge


The Ocean pitch challenge® is a Global competition that rewards "solutionists" with a positive impact on the Ocean. 

The challenge was created from the alliance between Sustainable Ocean Alliance (SOA) and RespectOcean with the support of the French Ministry of the Sea and the French Ministry of Ecological Transition.

It aims to:
•    Develop and promote economically viable solutions for the protection of the oceans and their marine and coastal ecosystems ;
•    Preselect and train 10 finalists in the pitching technique in order to increase their presentation skills and communication about their solution;
•    Reward three additional solutions on the following thematics "special prize for the preservation of marine biodiversity", "special prize for bio-inspired solutions", and "special prize for early-stage solutions".
•    Reward the top three candidates during a Grand final ;

For its second edition, 86 applications were received. Then, a committee of Ocean experts selected 10 solutions that are now receiving pitching practice from SOA coaches before the Grand final.

📆The final will be held online on May 17th from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. CET. Register below and hear about solutions that are protecting and preserving our Oceans!
