    At EDGEWISE, integrity is pivotal to conducting business. We strictly adhere to regulation and legislation with transparency and quality assurance.

    The blue economy is constantly changing with emerging technologies and scientific advancements. Within a competitive and rapidly evolving industry it is essential to think unconventionally. Edgewise is driven by its ability to manage change and turn obstacles into opportunities.

Our Journey into the Blue Economy

“Sometimes you come across a problem, a passion, or a hobby that sticks with you. That you cannot let go. Sometimes all three collide and the self-recognition is strong enough that you know you need to act on it, be your own boss, give it a go! This is exactly what happened to me, and what lead to the creation of Edgewise.”

– Ashley Noseworthy, CEO / Founder of EDGEWISE Environmental
