24.06.2021 Within the Greenstart initiative of the Climate and Energy Fund, ten start-ups were selected for the sixth time in the spring, each receiving 10.000 euros in start-up capital and professional support in developing sustainable business models. The top 3 start-ups will be presented in autumn and can then count on a further 20.000 euros in support for the implementation of their business plan. “On the one hand, the start-ups provide creative solutions and, on the other hand, they show the wide range of sustainable business ideas in Austria,” said Environment Minister Leonore Gewessler happily. Meanwhile, companies in Vienna can submit projects for the city's sustainability award until September 10th Submit. This year the motto is “climate neutrality”. Not only technical solutions, but also social aspects of sustainable business management and awareness-raising measures are recognized. The three award-winning companies receive support in their endeavors and are invited to a network meeting in the Vienna House in Brussels.
