Venture Forum aims to create a high-level arena for listed maritime companies and new ventures to match up with private and institutional investors. It will feature keynote talks by leading voices in the investment and innovation communities and a series of exclusive presentations of investment opportunities to investors, run in three parallel “ocean industry” streams – shipping/maritime, offshore energy and seafood.

The presentations will be limited to 15 companies per “stream”. Each will be given eight-minute slots to make “speed pitches”, followed by Q&A sessions with expert panels. The event will be rounded off with a social gathering for all participants. All participating companies will be given pitch training prior to the event.

Nor-Shipping invites listed maritime companies, new ventures and private and institutional investors to participate.
