“Maritime technologies here [in the United States] have access to talent and insights which we can carry over from other industries already ahead in these areas. The US has unprecedented knowledge and know-how in the technologies that underpin the disruption opportunities we are seeing in digitalization, from predictive analytics, machine learning and AI to Blockchain."
“There is deeper access to venture capital and private equity for technology investment in the US than other regions. Already with the venture investments in companies like Flexport and Nautilus Labs we are seeing investors coming in from outside of the industry."
"It is my view that the winning formula is to have deep industry knowledge in shipping and combine it with access to capital, disruptive technology and insights into the market's needs.”
