Origin by Ocean
The idea of Origin by Ocean was originally created by Mari Granström. Mari combined her background in organic chemistry and her long career with in biorefineries and biobased materials to a sustainable biorefinery concept that also can help the eutrophication problem of our oceans.
Since autumn 2018, Mari and Mikael started to work on this startup idea together as equal partners. The founders decided to recruit an extensive and well merited advisor board, as support and coaches.
In order to verify a potential business opportunity and market estimations a partnership with KPMG was established in January 2019. Founders, advisors and KPMG have jointly worked on this business case, market segmentation, branding, strategy and financial modeling.
The company (originally under the name of Ocean Orchard Oy) was established in March 2019.
As of late Q4/2019 the team was ready to start discussion regarding Seed round A-financing, with external investors.
