Meet-up with Jim Cooper, Cofounder, CTO, and Managing Partner of Braid Theory

Wednesday, November 10, 2021, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Tanner Research, 1851 Huntington Dr., Duarte, CA.

Join MADIA for a Meet-up with Jim Cooper, Cofounder, CTO, and Managing Partner of Braid Theory. Jim will discuss "The Blue Economy - Entrepreneurial Opportunities in Our Oceans." The Blue Economy is best described as a cross- and multidisciplinary ecosystem, which seeks to solve problems in and around the other 70% of our planet: the ocean, marine and maritime sector. It broadly encompasses many of the same technologies found in sectors such as agriculture and food technology, water, energy, life science, aerospace, transportation, shipping, logistics, fisheries, aquaculture, and construction. The blue economy includes concepts such as those that encourage stewardship, and ocean health, and seeks to address long standing negative trends in human capital for employment, investments in innovation, protecting ocean ecosystems, and mitigation of the effects of climate change. Jim specializes in commercializing ocean, marine and maritime technology and advises over a dozen startups. #blueeconomy #entrepreneurship #startupstrategy #biotechnology #climatetech
