Schulte Group introduces Innoport
The Schulte Group has launched Innoport, a dedicated venture capital unit which identifies investment opportunities in the global maritime start-up ecosystem to equip entrepreneurs with smart capital.
The Innoport team, based in Hamburg (Germany), Limassol (Cyprus) and Singapore, is headed by Yiannis Sykas, director of strategy and product development at Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM).
The unit will support early-stage maritime and logistics start-ups predominantly in Europe and Asia, with the flexibility to collaborate with newcomers from all areas of the world. Potential pilot projects within BSM, sales-partnerships and technical cooperations are some of the options in which the Innoport team acts as a sparring partner for the fledgling companies. (kd)
