Every 4th German startup is green!

Green Startup Monitor 2018

The recently released Green Startup Monitor (GSM) shows that sustainable startups have left the niche: In 2018, 26 percent of the young, innovative growth companies in Germany were operating with products and services that contribute to a Green Economy.

GSM identifies specific challenges and needs and recommends measures to improve the start-up and market environment of these green start-ups.

It was published by the Borderstep Institute in cooperation with the German Startups Association and financially supported by the German Federal Environmental Foundation.

The current GSM can be downloaded here free of charge.
