Development of a support offer for green start-ups on the founder platform

The issue of sustainability is becoming increasingly important in the development of new business ideas and models. In order to support those interested in starting a business in dealing with climate protection and other sustainability aspects at an early stage, the startup platform is further developing its knowledge and consulting services. Borderstep supports the development of the offering specifically for green start-ups.

The founder platform is the central contact point for all those interested in start-ups in the German-speaking region.

Prospective founders receive support in the implementation of their start-up project. From the idea to the business model to the business plan.

The Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection (BMWK) and KfW are the initiators of the platform. It is implemented by the partner BusinessPilot.

The founder platform aims to make it easier to start a business in Germany and encourage more people to do so. The free, digital service is designed to guide founders step by step through the start-up process. It helps them navigate through information and funding opportunities in an organized manner.

As part of its collaboration with the founder platform, Borderstep is designing new knowledge offerings, guides and learning formats specifically on the topic of green start-ups. Additional support and consulting formats offer interested founders personal and individual support to develop green ideas and business models.

In this way, founders should be enabled to develop their projects sustainably by means of new knowledge and competencies and to create positive ecological and social impact with entrepreneurial methods.
