The AMBA & BGA Excellence Awards 2022/23, held on December 9, 2022, at the Biltmore Hotel in London, gathered leading figures from the global business education community to celebrate excellence and commend exceptional achievements in business schools, MBA students, graduates, suppliers, and employers. 

As the event unfolded, Damien’s win for MBA Startup of the Year stood out, highlighting the value of startup business strategy and innovation in the competitive business landscape. 

Greenov, founded in January 2021, is on a noble mission—to protect marine ecosystems through maritime clean technology that minimize anthropic impacts. Embracing maritime Clean Tech, the french start up introduces the SubSea Quieter—a groundbreaking technology designed to shield marine ecosystems from noise pollution linked to maritime port and offshore works, including the installation of offshore wind turbine foundations. 

With 14 dedicated employees and a commitment to growth, the start up has earned prestigious recognition, being selected for the highly selective “Accelerator” program of the European Innovation Council (EIC). This has granted them €2.39 million in subsidies and an entry into the EU’s capital for the next funding round. Greenov’s achievements also extend to winning the esteemed Port of the Future 2022 Innovation Awards.

Join us in celebrating Greenov’s remarkable achievement and unwavering dedication to protecting marine ecosystems—a journey where innovation meets environmental stewardship. 

Let’s forge ahead with determination, passion, and a shared commitment to safeguard the oceans — one innovation at a time.
