A digital platform to easily identify sustainable investment funds, a novel energy-saving greenhouse lighting system, a fully automated stone fruit processing technology, or eco-friendly mobile toilets - these are four of the ten innovative business ideas selected by a jury for the Greenstart competition. In November 2018 the "Greenstarter" in Vienna presented themselves to the public.
In addition to 6.000 Euro Start-Up Capital, the young entrepreneurs will now be given workshops, coaching and public relations support by experts from the start-up platform "Der Brutkasten" for half a year to further develop their climate-friendly business models. Thereafter, the top 3 start-up companies are selected based on a judgment of the expert jury and a public online voting.
The winners will receive further 15.000 Euro support for the implementation of their business plan. Greenstart is an initiative of the Climate and Energy Fund in cooperation with the Federal Ministry for Sustainability and Tourism.
