About the founder platform

The founder platform is the central contact point for all start-up enthusiasts in German-speaking countries. Aspiring founders are supported from the idea to the business model to the business plan in the implementation of their start-up project. The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) and KfW are the initiators of the platform. It is implemented by the partner BusinessPilot.

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 startups. Additional support and consulting formats offer personal and individual assistance to those interested in founding a company. This enables them to develop their green ideas and business models.

The founder platform aims to empower founders to develop their ventures sustainably using new knowledge and skills. And to create positive ecological and social impact with entrepreneurial methods.
