The Iceland Ocean Cluster is a world leader in supporting, connecting, incubating, investing, and growing startups that create value from material formerly considered waste. For over a decade, the Cluster has been a driving force in connecting the dots between the blue economy and entrepreneurs with great ideas on utilizing our sustainable wild catch and farmed seafood further – pushing them to do more with less. 

The Ocean Cluster in Reykjavik is a community of over 70 companies and entrepreneurs in the blue economy. It includes companies in aquaculture, fish sales, marine technology, software, design, biotechnology, cosmetics, and more. 

The Ocean Cluster House is located on the upper floor of an old building at Grandagarður 16 by the Old Harbour in Reykjavik.
