Green Startup Monitor 2020

Green Startup Monitor 2020

The Green Startup Monitor 2020 celebrated its premiere on 29 April. The key findings of our Green Startup Monitor 2020 are now available in English!

The Green Startup Monitor analyses the importance of those start-ups that contribute with their products and services to the ecological goals of a green economy. The representative study is based on data collected through an online questionnaire from 1,620 innovative and growth-oriented companies that are less than 10 years old and have their headquarters in Germany.

Green startups are more confident about their future and want returns for all, people and planet! Green startups have a key function as an engine for structural change. Which hurdles do they struggle with? How can they best be supported?

The global economy is vulnerable. The current crisis shows that. The resilience of the economy must therefore be the focus of economic reconstruction. But how can we succeed in building a sustainable economy?

What are the biggest challenges for green start-ups?

Green start-ups can play a model role in this context. They have become an important part of the German start-up ecosystem. One in five German start-ups classifies itself in the green economy. What is the situation for these start-ups in Germany? What are the biggest challenges? And how are they mastering the crisis?

The Green Startup Monitor was published by the Borderstep Institute for Innovation and Sustainability in cooperation with the German Startup Association and was supported both technically and financially by the German Federal Environmental Foundation.
