The Monaco Ocean Protection Challenge began in 2018 as a collaboration between 4 partners dedicated to ocean protection and awareness: The Oceanographic Institute of Monaco, Monaco Impact, The International University of Monaco, and The Fondation Prince Albert II. The aim of the MOPC as a whole is to provide young students and entrepreneurs with the opportunities and skills to succeed in building sustainable businesses.
The 2021 challenge edition is open to all university undergraduates, post-bachelor students, and young entrepreneurs who are creating a company or have created one after January 2020. The challenge entails building a business plan to protect our oceans, with this year’s 4th Edition theme being: “When Circular Economy Saves the Ocean”. Participants must submit a business plan, a 1-minute video presenting their business and plan, and a timeline of their milestones and achievements for their business idea.
Deadline for registration: 30 April 2021.
