Speaking at the opening of The Entrepreneur Ship, Minister Simon Coveney, TD said: “The government has ambitious plans to grow Ireland’s marine economy to maximise the potential of our vast marine resources. Business incubators, accelerators, and co-creation spaces have been proven to support and fast-track start-up companies seeking to exploit emerging market opportunities. The Entrepreneur Ship is the first dedicated marine innovation centre in Ireland providing companies with access to an ecosystem of world class training, talent, research and test bed facilities through the IMERC partners in Cork.


Exceedence – a UCC/MaREI spinout – has developed software that will provide financial analytics solutions to developers in the marine renewables sector.
