The green start-up community meets at StartGreen

StartGreen Portal

StartGreen is the online information and networking portal for the green start-up community in Germany. In addition to news, events, and video contributions, as well as analyses and reports, stakeholders in the green start-up community can seek out potential partners and contacts in the networking section.

The green start-up community meets at StartGreen in order to counter the greatest environmental and social challenges of our time together. The online portal plays an important role in this process by providing information and networking opportunities. At StartGreen, stakeholders in the green start-up community can gather information, learn from each other, communicate, and network.

StartGreen sees itself as a portal for the green start-up community, which is not only to be used by those involved, but also shaped by them. The portal thus supports stakeholders in the green start-up community in transforming our economy into a “green economy”.

The portal is operated by the Borderstep Institute for Sustainability and Innovation.
