Step into the Innovative Future of Offshore Wind: A Celebratory Evening with the Finalists for the Offshore Wind Innovation Hub Accelerator! 

Do you want to connect with the next wave of emerging offshore wind innovations? Take part in the Wind-Win Startup Showdown pitch event presented by the Offshore Wind Innovation Hub and hosted at the Brooklyn Grange Rooftop Farm — a sustainable urban farm in Sunset Park that provides unique opportunities for open-air networking and breathtaking skyline views.

An unparalleled opportunity to engage with the leading offshore wind innovators who are propelling the industry forward with novel tech solutions.

Innovation in Focus

The event will showcase interactive lightning pitches from our selected accelerator finalists from around the globe, presented live in front of you and to our esteemed jury of industry experts. This will act as part of the final evaluation process for the 2024 Offshore Wind Innovation Hub Accelerator cohort.

This festive evening will offer you the opportunity to engage directly with the finalists and gain insights into the next wave of cutting-edge ideas shaping the future of offshore wind.

The Offshore Wind Innovation Hub Accelerator

A world-class accelerator program open to global offshore wind innovators. Building on a successful inaugural cohort, this six-month intensive program provides unparalleled support for innovators looking to develop novel technology and advance commercialization in the New York offshore wind market. The 2024 cohort will focus on novel technologies that can improve project economics of US offshore wind.

The Offshore Wind Innovation Hub is an initiative, led by Equinor in collaboration with Urban Future Lab at NYU Tandon School of Engineering, and National Offshore Wind R&D Consortium - supported by New York City Economic Development Corporation.
