  • 4Shipping
    4shipping provides a chartering app specific for inland waterway transport.
  • Green Sea Guard
    Green Sea Guard provides a system to track ship exhaust emissions, transmitting data collected
    from the ship’s exhaust, and sending it to a secure server.
  • Sagar Defence
    Sagar Defence creates an autonomous ocean robot/vehicle. Sitting at the surface, the robot is capable of collecting ocean data real-time.
  • Feo AR
    Augmented Reality platform to supercharge engineers on board of vessels with an extra pair of
    eyes, brains and memory.
  • MedAssist.Online
    Offers applications to support with the provision of medical care at sea.
  • AlterAct
    AlterAct creates immersive learning solutions for safety training using virtual reality.
  • McNetiq

  • LiquidGold

  • DeepSix

The startups will present their progress on a demoday called PortXL Shakedown on June 22. Last year’s first Shakedown went off to a fine start.


New this year is the cooperation between PortXL and crowdfunding platform Symbid. Together, they want to make it easier and more efficient for start-ps from PortXL to raise capital by presenting them to a large group of potential investors through this platform. The organization must have been inspired by Startupbootcamp: that accelerator is also having such a partnership with angel investment platform Leapfunder.
