The program

We believe that in order to ensure a healthy planet for future generations and make a real sustainable impact, we must think outside of the box and team up with fresh minds and creative ideas from around the world.

Yara Marine X is not your typical accelerator - it is a 3-month tailored program that will give you the opportunity to develop and pilot your startup through our industry competence, network, distribution, and scaling knowledge. Ultimately exploring partnership opportunities, possible investments, and a collaborative future with us and our network.

We believe to have an actual impact, we must take tangible actions that will enable this change toward a greener maritime industry. And part of the solution is fostering startups that recognize the urgency to decarbonize the maritime industry.










Who should apply?

We are looking for startups in early phase that have already proven product-market-fit and have a sustainability or green focus applicable within the Maritime industry. 

If you are chosen to be a part of Yara Marine X, you will receive a package that includes:

  • 2-week on-site bootcamp to ascertain gaps and needs to fill with competence and mentorship within Yara Marine and Oslo Venture Company.
  • 3-month tailored program including fast piloting, go-to-market, development and network access.
  • Opportunity to travel to Oslo and/or Gothenburg and work directly with your mentors for part of the program, all travel expenses paid.
