Aquaculture Innovation Challenge Vietnam

  (VIET NAM, 11/29/2016)

By 2050, aquaculture production will need to grow by another 70 million tonnes to meet the world’s seafood demand. The consumption and dependency on seafood for well-being has never been this high.

Aquaculture presents a significant opportunity to enhance food security. Vietnam, the fourth largest aquaculture producer in the world, has demonstrated its potential, but the emergence of the aquaculture sector raises major concerns in the country. The role of entrepreneurs will be the key to creating necessary innovations for a sustainable aquaculture sector.

However, in order to realize ambitions and innovations for the sector, access to finance and capital is critically important. Finding bright minds and enabling them to realize their ambition by connecting them to finance and capital is the target of the Aquaculture Innovation Challenge

The challenge is open for online and offline applications from 6 December 2016 until 18 February 2017. Finalists will be invited to an intensive business plan bootcamp and pitching event. The best business plans will be awarded a cash investment for initiating the business plan. Winners will be announced in June.

For this challenge, innovations and solutions are sought in three different categories: 

·  Design

·  Demonstration 

·  Upscaling 

Willem Schoustra, project manager for Blue Growth at the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs said, “Aquaculture has an enormous potential as a source of animal protein. There is one condition: we have to reach this potential in a sustainable way! The Dutch government is continuously exploring how to contribute best to the development of a sustainable aquaculture sector around the world. The Aquaculture Innovation Challenge is an opportunity to bring together innovation and finance to achieve this goal.”

Key partners include Inve Aquaculture and De Heus. The competition jury consists of experts with a background in science, business, finance and civil society including partners such as Rabobank, Alterfin, Aqua-Spark, ICCO Investments, AUSaid/DFAT, Seafood Connection, Pan Group, Asian Development Bank, Wageningen University, Ghent University and Solidaridad.
 
The United States are Vietnam’s biggest export partner, importing nearly US$ 1.7 billion of seafood products in 2014, accounting for 20% of total Vietnamese exports. (Source: www.seafood-tip.com)
