Fish 2.0 closed out its 2017 Innovation Forum today by awarding a cash prize to Panacea Oyster Co-Op. The International Business Competition was held in silicon valley (PALO ALTO, CA), where Rob Olin presented the forum with the Panacea Oyster Co-Op story. Mr. Olin provided additional details to judges during a 5-minute question-and-answer sessions on stage at Stanford University. Winners were selected from six regional and two global tracks.
The Co-Op is a great success story because of the synergies in so many areas:
- People working together for a common cause and economic goal
- The revival of a keystone species that is needed to preserve our waters
- The opportunity to build a national brand
- Partnering with Government, Academic Institutions and Private Business
