Who can join?

Everyone with a green business and dreaming of becoming an entrepreneur can enter the competition. This green idea can be about an all-out mind shift in urban mobility, a sustainable transition in the food chain, innovations in renewable energy, energy efficiency, agriculture, water, transportation, industrial technology or any other way to tackle climate change.

The idea can still be on the back of a napkin. Some restrictions:

  • you have not yet started a business or started it less than one year ago;
  • you do not have substantial revenue;
  • you have attracted less than € 200.000 in investment (definition: no funding as a venture. Funding as a student does not count)
