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



Together with our innovation partner, EWS Elektrizitätswerke Schönau, we are looking for startup pioneers who contribute to climate protection with their technological solutions.

In the spirit of sustainable development, we are looking for triple impact startups that create social and ecological added value and at the same time have economically sound business models. This can range from explicitly sustainable technologies for more climate protection to technological innovations that trigger social change.

If this applies to your start-up, you have already founded it and the prize money gives you a decisive kick, then apply – and MakeItMatter! Ideally, you have already brought your product/solution to market, but that is not a prerequisite.

The EWS is donating prize money totalling €40.000, which will be divided among three prizes.

  • Prize: 16.000 €
  • Prize: 13.000 €
  • Prize: 11.000 €


+ + The prizes for 2023 are donated already. Updates on the new competition in 2024 will follow soon. + +
