OceanHero is an organization that funds ocean-bound plastic recovery, recycling infrastructure development, and the technology to transform waste products into new goods — all by the simple use of a search engine.
OceanHero founder Marvin Burman, from Germany, describes himself as a “serial entrepreneur” who has eight years of experience building digital products. He co-founded a software testing company which he sold to the global leader in digital testing and built a robust European market presence.
The idea for OceanHero came to Burman when he realized that sustainability will be the biggest challenge of the 2020s. After his eight years of working in a standard tech company, he wanted to focus on something that has a long-lasting positive impact on humanity and the environment.
