  • Blue Mentorship Programme | GoGMI

    WHERE IT ALL BEGUN... In November 2021, the Gulf of Guinea Maritime Institute (GoGMI) held its flagship Blue Career and Business Expo, which created multi-opportunity exchange platforms for young people to learn from maritime industry leaders across the country and to gain an appreciation of the range of opportunities within Ghana’s blue economy sectors. The Expo was attended by over 200 individuals, including high profile personalities, maritime industry practitioners, students and other relevant stakeholders. The BCBE was not meant to be a single event, but rather, the first in a series of events aimed at actively engaging African youth in the path towards building a resilient blue economy for the continent. As intended, the BCBE was used to initiate a Mentorship Programme for which several of the participating youth showed interest. This year, GoGMI intends to go a step further by selecting thirty young individuals to be engaged in its Blue Mentorship Programme – a full mentorship and grooming experience intended to prime them for blue success. ABOUT THE PROGRAMME The Blue Mentorship Programme is an African maritime accelerator intended to encourage youth to engage in sustainable blue economy careers and to offer them support through their business, entrepreneurial or career progression journey. The entire programme is intended to have the following impacts: Serve as an incubation hub for blue economy start-ups Provide learning and support for youth through their career, entrepreneurial or business journey Facilitate youth engagement with corporate and industry partners who are passionate about innovation, diversity and inclusion of young minds in the development of Africa’s blue economy Provide youth with access to maritime industry mentorship, support services, educational and networking events, while keeping them updated on the latest new, developments and engagements in Africa’s blue economy community Beyond mentorship, the programme aims to achieve this by offering a wide range of curated platforms for young people who have an interest in maritime careers or businesses to meet, share and collaborate on different fronts while expanding their skill-set and knowledge base ELEMENTS OF THE PROGRAMME Mentor Pairing At the start of the programme, mentees will be paired with mentors who will offer them guidance in their blue career/entrepreneurship pursuits across a broad range of areas. This mentorship will continue for the duration of the entire Blue Mentorship Programme and will form the foundation upon which all other activities will commence. 2. Blue Success Speaker Series (BLUESSS) 2022 Mentees will be given the opportunity to ask questions, allowing them to delve deeper into the backstory of these well-established entrepreneurs. Attending this event will provide young individuals a great chance to network with like-minded individuals who share their passion for various maritime careers and entrepreneurship. The mentees will be clustered into groups on the basis of blue economy sector categories so that they can receive specialised advice tailored to their interests. The BLUESSS platform is intended to create the opportunity for young people to hear first-hand accounts from successful blue economy entrepreneurs, ocean innovators and other ocean professionals across a broad range of blue economy industries. The speakers will share insights into their career and entrepreneurial journey, including their notable successes and failures. 3. Maritime Business Support Hub 2023 Following successful participation in the BLUESS, mentees will be afforded the opportunity to build on lessons learned to generate and expand on sustainable blue economy ideas through a year-long Maritime Business Incubator, with sessions held each quarter. Quarter 1: The Mind Map Mentees will be taken through a guided mind-mapping exercise/brainstorming sessions to identify blue economy sectors within which they have interest, skills or expertise and explore the range of opportunities for innovation and change within these sectors. ​ Quarter 2: The Blue Economy Innovation Challenge Following the Mind Map, mentees will be given some time to come up with innovative ocean ideas or work with industry to identify business case problems and develop solutions within their blue economy sectors. They will be afforded the opportunity to pitch their ideas to a panel for review and inputs. Quarter 3: The Blue Platform The Innovation Challenge will be followed by the creation of a virtual platform for mentees to interact with a comprehensive community of innovators, experts and support systems to help them further develop and potentially implement their blue ideas. The platform will also provide a great place to meet potential team members, founding partners and advisers. THE BIGGER PICTURE: A MARITIME BUSINESS INCUBATOR Beyond the Blue Mentorship Programme, GoGMI aims to expand its engagement with youth to develop a Maritime Business Incubator (MBI) which will, through a combination of progammes, partner with global maritime industry and practitioners to provide solutions and resources to improve career and business connections and financing for innovations in blue start-ups and entrepreneurial activities in the Gulf of Guinea region. The Incubator will achieve this by offering a wide range of curated platforms for young people, entrepreneurs and business men and women who have an interest in a maritime career or business to meet, share and collaborate on different projects and activities while developing skills and knowledge using extensive resource hubs and directories. Through the Gulf of Guinea Maritime Institute and partners network, individuals who are interested in starting a blue business or have plans to build their career in any blue economy sector can learn and find support throughout the lifespan of their business, career and entrepreneurial journey. The MBI will also collaborate with academia to develop collaborative research networks across the sub region dedicated to enhancing indigenous understanding of Africa’s blue economy sectors and publish the ideas that address how to best identify, nurture, and develop careers and businesses in a publicly accessible collection. Private sector will be involved in the Incubator’s programmes to help bring about an innovative spirit of change for young entrepreneurs and the Gulf of Guinea region blue economy business community. THEMES OF THE INCUBATOR Entrepreneurship Mentorship Maritime Innovation Networking and Knowledge-Sharing Blue Human Capital Innovation The Incubator’s networking events will bring together young minds who have interests in different blue economy careers and businesses on common platforms including conferences, boardrooms, workshops, policy-making councils, roundtables, fireside chats, etc. These networks will then connect young minds with lifelong relationships, pairing them with corporate and industry members and providing them the opportunity to have discourses on careers and businesses to better analyse and find solutions to challenging issues these young people face. The MBI will also feature a Maritime Data Hub which will serve as a one-stop data repository for the development and test-bedding of new digital applications and services for the maritime industry, and a community journal which will feature relevant community blog posts and articles aimed at enhancing knowledge and information sharing You are welcome to apply for the Blue Mentorship Programme today! ​ Are you - or is someone you know - a young person aged 18-30 that is passionate about innovation, diversity and inclusion in the development of Africa’s blue economy or looking for support through their business, entrepreneurial or career progression journey?

    GoGMIについて ギニア湾(GoG)地域は、コートジボワールからアンゴラまでの沿岸州の間に囲まれた海域として定義されています。湾岸諸国には、コートジボワールガーナ、トーゴ、ベニン、ナイジェリア、カメルーン、赤道ギニア、コンゴ、コンゴ民主共和国、ガボン、アンゴラが含まれます。この地域は原油や水産資源が豊富で、世界の大国にとってますます魅力的になっています。この地域は、やがて原油生産においてペルシャ湾と同等かそれを超えると評価されています。また、非常に不安定な地域です。地域の資源を管理するための大国間の競争は、冷戦スタイルの代理戦争と地域のより多くの不安につながる可能性があります。ガーナのジュビリー油田にあるコスモスエナジーの株式を購入するための、ガーナ国立石油公社(GNPC)を通じた米国のエクソンモービルと中国海洋石油会社(CNOOC)の間の最近の激しい競争は、これらの代理紛争の可能性を証明しています。 GoG地域の政府は、そのような状況で健全な意思決定を行うために、経済的および政治的ダイナミクスに加えて、戦略的な海上安全保障分析に基づいた必要な情報を持っている必要があります。そのような情報が外部ソースではなく固有のソースから発信されていることが重要です。 現在、GoGには、戦略的な海事研究、アドボカシー、コンサルティングを専門とする活発な先住民機関はありません。地域外の機関からの情報と評価への継続的な依存は、地域の国々の利益のためにうまく機能しません。これらの情報と評価は、主に情報源の国と機関の利益に基づいています。 ギニア湾海事研究所(GoGMI)は、その隙間を埋めるように設計されています。ガーナに設立された非営利の研究機関です。これは、ギニア湾(GoG)地域に影響を与える戦略的海事に関する相互作用、アイデアの共有、研究を行うための海事戦略思想家、実務家、同盟国の「シンクタンク」を構成します。インスティテュートのコアビジネスは、ガーナおよびギニア湾の海事空間全体の安全性、セキュリティ、環境の分野における戦略的な海事研究、コンサルティング、およびアドボカシーです。 GoGMIの主な目的は、認識された研究を生み出し、先住民の視点から解決策を提供することです。これにより、地域の意見や関心が過小評価されている地域の海事研究における現在の不均衡に対処します。 ヴィジョン 私たちのビジョンは、GoG地域の戦略的海事における主要な研究および擁護機関になることです。 ミッションステートメント GoGMIの使命は、海の持続可能な利用を確保するために、その活動がGoG地域の海事領域に影響を与える政府、組織、企業体、および個人に知的基盤を提供することです。私たちは、地域の海洋環境に影響を与える政策や活動に影響を与えるために、地域に影響を与える戦略的な海事問題の研究と擁護によってそれを行います。私たちの事業を遂行するにあたり、私たちは独立性、正確性、公平性の価値を支持します。 事業の型 GoGMIの背後にある原動力は、戦略的な海事研究、教育、メディア、およびコンサルティングサービスにおける卓越性の達成です。 GoGMIは、従来の障壁を克服するためにさまざまな媒体を使用して、すべての人に知識を提供することを目的とした先駆的な学際的な組織です。非営利の研究組織であるGoGMIのビジネスモデルは、仮想コミュニティに依存して研究および教育ソリューションの作成に必要な収益を生み出すという点で独特です。このモデルは、研究所の独立性とGoG地域のニーズに対応する能力を保証する自己永続的なサイクルです。研究所内の寄稿者とその専門家のネットワークがコンテンツを作成し、定期刊行物、書籍、セミナー、会議、インターネットなどのさまざまなチャネルを通じて配布され、海事分野の研究に関心のある人々のコミュニティに提供されます。地域の。
