The Fish 2.0 2017 Competition has launched! This is a unique opportunity for businesses and investors to come together and continue building partnerships and momentum in the sustainable seafood sector.
AMCC was a winner in the 2015 Fish 2.0 international business plan competition for our vision for the Alaska Community Seafood Hub. The competition had an array of positive impacts on our organization and seafood sales program that we are continuing to grow and working to rebrand. Seafood entrepreneurs who are seeking to improve their business model, gain financial support and develop industry connections are encouraged to participate in this year’s competition!
This recent “Story of Impact” reveals how AMCC inspired the Monterey Bay Fisheries Trust to investigate opportunities for a seafood hub through Fish 2.0 in 2015.
The online entry deadline for the 2017 competition is quickly approaching on April 29th. There are six regional tracks in this year’s competition. Alaskan businesses can compete in the West Coast regional track thanks to support from the Rasmuson Foundation. This year’s competition also features a ‘Supply Chain Innovation’ thematic track that community supported fisheries and other values-based seafood businesses should consider.
Are you an Alaska-based company interested in competing in Fish 2.0? You’re invited to contact AMCC’s Executive Director, Kelly Harrell at firstname.lastname@example.org about her experience. Full details about the competition can be found here.
