I Joined Eco Clipper at the beginning of October as a Communications Intern, responsible for LinkedIn. I’ve really enjoyed learning all about what the EcoClipper team have achieved so and I’m proud to being able to contribute in a small way to this brilliant new venture.

What is your future vision of Ecoclipper as a company?

I’m excited to see EcoClipper achieve its goals, at a time when the earth is facing an ecological crisis it’s comforting to know that there are passionate people working hard on alternatives to some of the biggest carbon contributing industries.

The internship at Ecoclipper allows me to accompany a shipping line during its foundation phase which is exciting. I am also learning a lot about crowdfunding and social media marketing. Of course, the best about being involved in sailing and environmental projects is the kind of people you meet there.

What is your future vision of Ecoclipper as a company?

I believe that Ecoclipper has the potential to successfully conquer a niche in global maritime trade. Ecoclipper exclusively relies on engineless sailing ships which constitutes a unique selling proposition. However, Ecoclipper could have much wider reaching consequences. By demonstrating that sail cargo can be economically successful, Ecoclipper could transform the entire way how cargo is transported in the 21st century.
