Hatch launches the world’s first women in aquaculture innovation studio
Hatch, a global venture and accelerator programme for the aquaculture industry, will launch the world’s first global innovation studio targeted for female entrepreneurs in the aquaculture and alternative seafood industry.
Hatch’s aim is to offer business support to develop and mentor the next generation of female aquaculture and alternative seafood entrepreneurs and to attract more talent to the sector.
The challenges associated with the ever-increasing global population have made it more important than ever for the aquaculture food industry to be able to perform at its full potential. Inclusion and diversity are essential for shaping a sustainable future for the aquaculture industry. Yet, according to the FAO, the gender gap in the food and agriculture industries is extensive.
Women are a major untapped innovation resource for the aquaculture industry. With this initiative we hope to close some of the gender gaps we see in entrepreneurial businesses and the sector
