Our mobile think tank/ incubator Startupboat brings together locals, refugees and international experts to tackle challenges that can result in massive opportunities, such as mass migration. The Startupboat Incubator was first started on Samos island by Paula Schwarz and her crew in order to create solutions for the millions of refugees deriving from Syria towards Europe in 2015.

Since then, Startupboats have taken place in the Philippines, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Turkey, Jordan and Germany. Solutions built on Startupboats range from projects in sectors such as recycling, mobility, fin-tech and information technology to education, real-estate, housing  and ocean conservation.

The next Startupboat sessions will take place from the 20th until the 27th of June with a focus on recycling on and ocean conservation.

We are grateful for the wonderful entrepreneurs, investors and scientists who will join and contribute their time and resources to built an effective, join solution together.
