For five years in a row (2015 to 2019), we have honored the most promising green startups and startup concepts with the StartGreen Award and given them visibility. In total, we received over 700 applications, more than 1000 participants attended the award ceremonies at the Federal Ministry for the Environment and exchanged ideas at the networking events.
We are proud of this contribution we have been able to make to the sustainable startup community over the years and would like to express our sincere thanks to all partners and supporters who have made this possible.
Unfortunately, the current circumstances do not allow us to hold the award again this year. We will continue to work on the development of innovative tools and methods for startups and also increasingly collect relevant data on the green startup ecosystem and its needs (such as in the Green Startup Monitor). This information will help improve Germany as a startup location and identify the needs of startup teams more precisely.
