The MAR+Invest Acceleration Programme seeks to promote the growth of early-stage and established companies with a positive impact on the corals of the Mesoamerican Reef (MAR) and reef-dependent communities. These projects should contribute to solving one or more of the main threats to reefs in the MAR: lack of wastewater and solid waste treatment, overfishing, and climate change. Business solutions must generate a positive impact on coral reefs and neighboring communities and have operations in at least one of the MAR countries: Mexico (Quintana Roo), Belize, Guatemala and Honduras.
The programme will support the selected projects through personalized training, development of impact indicators and measurement systems, strategic partnerships, and access to financial solutions.
Meet the inspirational entrepreneurs selected for the 2023 Cohort of the MAR+Invest Acceleration Programme.
