Research in the field of sustainable entrepreneurship

Borderstep develops projects in the field of sustainable entrepreneurship that create incentives for green start-up activities. These activities occur at various stages in starting a new business: the development of ideas, founding the business, growth, and expansion.

In the StartUp4Climate project, the world’s first national start-up initiative for a green economy, Borderstep collaborated with leading universities with a special concentration in business start-ups, for example on the concept of the Sustainable Business Canvas, which provides support to entrepreneurs when developing sustainable business models.

Entrepreneurial ecosystems involve the interaction between support provided to business start-ups and innovation in sustainable start-ups and innovators who develop new business activities in the field of green technologies, products, and services.

Borderstep consults policy-makers, business development organizations, and others concerning the development of sustainable business development support.
