Fishy Filaments was invited to attend the European Commission and EMFF’s first ever BlueInvest pitch event in Brussels on the 17th May 2018.

It was, nominally, a competitive pitch to a panel of professional investors but it was really more a structure to bring together actors in the Blue Economy, with most of the space in the Square Brussels Meeting Centre dedicated to short one-to-one meetings. Around 350 interested parties attended and event registration was closed early, so plenty of active interest in the maritime economy out there.

I had travel problems on the way so had a dissappointingly short time during the formal event to network but still made some useful contacts and it was, over all, well worth attending.


Attached is the summary from the organisers. We’ve had to chop it down a bit to fit on our website but if you want to see it with vids and all please visit the European Commission website
