Maritime technology discovery platform launched

British maritime innovation consultancy Thetius, led by occasional Splash contributor Nick Chubb, has launched an innovation intelligence platform.

Thetius Insight allows users to access up to date information on startups and innovation projects throughout the maritime sector and offers a new way for established shipping companies to understand and engage with innovative businesses.

“This project was born out of frustration,” Chubb stated in a release. “There are so many amazing projects going on in our industry but they are often hidden away. Through Thetius Insight we can highlight projects at every stage of development and give established shipping companies the tools and information they need to successfully transform their own businesses”

Thetius Insight includes more than 220 profiles of maritime startups innovation projects and access to in-depth research into new technology areas.

“Startup driven innovation is a hugely exciting and rapidly growing new sector, but it comes with huge amounts of hype and hyperbole. My aim with Thetius Insight is for it be an independent voice, helping maritime businesses who want to engage with new technology to cut through the noise and get a clear understanding of what is worth pursuing,” Chubb told Splash today.
