What you get in our GROW program


You're not doing it on your own: An individual case manager supports you, but also challenges you within the framework of the program. In concrete terms, this means that we help you as initiators, consultants and project managers at the same time to advance your business and possible collaborations.


We connect you with investors, lawyers, financial experts, successful founders, friends accelerators from Germany, Israel and Switzerland as well as decision makers of a huge Green Tech network. Within our event formats you will receive honest feedback and lots of insights.


You cooperate with our innovation partners right from the start and work together on concrete milestones!
