Green-Tech expertise in program form: ACCELERATE To the program


The GrüNetz project is a project with the aim of effectively promoting the dissemination of environmental innovations and the sustainable transformation of companies.

Together with our consortial partners from INEC at the University of Pforzheim and the Landesagentur für Umwelttechnik BW, we want to strengthen the market entry of green start-ups through targeted networking with SME (acronym “GrüNetz”).

Both, startups and established SME that are looking for sustainable transformation, can register for the matchmaking and partnering in the GrüNetz program and use the targeted initiation of collaborations for themselves.

Startups benefit from the individual and systematic mediation of interested decision-makers on the SME side as potential customers and collaboration partners, and SME look forward to the trend radar on the most relevant current environmental innovations on the market and contact with highly motivated doers who are pushing the sustainable transformation of our country.

Our learnings in the GrüNetz consortium will then flow into a kind of recipe book for the successful leveraging of synergy potentials from the collaboration between SME and green startups that will serve as inspiration for other regions.



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


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.


We don't want your shares. So: Keep calm & keep your money! ;-)


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.
