Technology Innovation & AFDF's Startup Accelerator


We work with startups and strategic partners to accelerate innovative technologies for the benefit of Alaska's marine industries, coastal communities, and ocean ecosystems.

The AFDF Startup Accelerator was founded as the Alaska Ocean Cluster by the Bering Sea Fishermen's Association. In 2022, SFA transferred the Alaska ocean Cluster to AFDF and rebranded the program as the AFDF Startup Accelerator. 

The following slides summarize some of the projects and technology that have been part of the Startup Accelerator, as presented at the Pacific Marine Expo in November 2022.
