The Navigator will assist in the design, engagement and delivery of ocean venture creation activities that include events, outreach and ecosystem building. The Navigator will meet with current and potential entrepreneurs, partners and others in the ecosystem to evaluate opportunities and provide support.

 

Indigenous Ocean Ecosystem Navigator

Coastal First Nations have a unique relationship with the ocean, through the deep and cultural, historic, and spiritual understanding of the natural world. Their ways of knowing combined with innovative solutions could assist in addressing many of the unhealthy challenges our marine environments now face.

The Indigenous Ocean Ecosystem Navigator (the Navigator) will play a key role in our listening and learning along with the planning, coordination and implementation of high caliber programs, events and competitions surrounding the Ocean Startup Project (OSP) and the Centre for Ocean Applied Sustainable Technologies (COAST), an initiative of the South Island Prosperity Partnership (SIPP).

The Navigator will conduct outreach across BC and other parts of Canada and meet with current and potential entrepreneurs, partners and others in the ecosystem to raise awareness of opportunities and to connect very early stage entrepreneurs to programs and advisors. To ensure existing networks with First Nations and Indigenous communities connect with blue economy opportunities, the Navigator will also act as a collaborator, working closely with partners to connect them to OSP and COAST opportunities.
