Ocean Power Technologies (OPT) CEO Philipp Stratmann joined Natalie Stoberman from the Proactive studios to discuss the company's growth strategy in the field of ocean intelligence.
Stratmann said OPT has successfully pivoted into the ocean intelligence industry, offering connectivity solutions, platforms, and services to enhance ocean data provision. This growth presents opportunities for OPT to expand into new areas of the ocean industry, including defense, national security, and autonomous solutions.
