I’m on my way to Savannah, Georgia, to host this year’s Ocean Exchange Conference, a global innovation conference which awards two prizes for great, market-ready ideas for sustainable development. It’s a fascinating conference, with ten finalists presenting their work for review by a group of about 150 delegates from corporate, academic and scientific fields — and this business writer. After each couple of presentations, the delegates caucus in small groups and compare notes. So it’s great to get your impression of a what looks like a great idea and then have your ideas validated–or corrected–by experts who can analyze the science and business prospects.
I’ll be blogging on this starting on Sunday, but if you’re interested in seeing the innovations we’ll be looking at, you can find them here.
