Maritime Global Technologies Innovation Center (MGTIC) is to connect and catalyze New York Metropolitan regional startups, early stage companies, and innovators from within and outside the global maritime industry ecosystem.
Shipping interests exist in an increasingly complex environment and are impacted by new problems every day, while entrepreneurs seek to remedy these problems.
Participants in MGTIC will provide the expert resources necessary for the development and implementation of innovative yet practical, profitable, and environmentally sustainable solutions.
The NYC metropolitan area offers access to an unparalleled volume of shipping companies, port and terminal providers, law firms, professional maritime organizations, as well as an abundance of private equity and financial institutions.
As a neutral ground with the entrepreneurial focus of the maritime industry ecosystem, MGTIC will spur development and serve as a bridge between the Tech, Maritime, Logistics, and Finance communities to connect startups to maritime interests globally.
We help solve problems for the big players: terminal operators and shipping companies.
We focus on the small players: the startups, students, and entrepreneurial minded of New York.
We know the benefits that the greater New York Maritime industry has to offer for both.
MGTIC seeks to contribute to future developments in the maritime community through solution-based growth. Upcoming issues of artificial intelligence, regulatory compliance, autonomous vehicles, offshore renewables, safety, cybersecurity, and the implications of block chain-based advancements all offer varying challenges in implementation.

Focus on applied learning and workforce skills preparation emphasizing novel solutions in the maritime sector.
