Entrepreneurship and Innovation
Plymouth has a 400-year long tradition of risk-taking and exhibiting the courage it takes to start out on a journey, filled with unknowns. Today these courageous risk-takers are our entrepreneurs. Their journeys are the long, sometimes arduous process of taking an innovative idea and turning it into a business. Originally it was the Mayflower journeying across the Atlantic. Today, it may the creator of an AI operated, ocean-roving robot. Or perhaps an innovative new type of farming: a carbon-capturing kelp farming operation that helps protect the environment and provides a new source of nutrition.
The Plymouth Foundation is committed to working with our partners to create infrastructure that nurtures creative solutions to pressing problems. Our current initiative to build a maker space to support trades and a shared kitchen that will space food manufacturing and food science are overt actions we intend to take. We are also actively working to create an entrepreneurial community. We are looking for people who have identified problems they want to solve and ideas about how to solve them.
