Last weekend (18 & 19 Nov 2017) I participated in the bootcamp “Van Eigen Kweek”, organised by Inagro. Together with 3 other participants (Bert Sercu and Bart Kregersman of Project Zeebes, and Thierry Janssens) we compiled a business plan for on-land integrated production of shrimp and seaweed. The jury deemed this the best business plan and so we went home with €30.000 worth in subsidies.
We agreed to use the money to overcome some technical challenges related to cultivating tropical algae on land. Our partner for this is the HZ University of Applied Sciences.
