greenstart meets WineDown: Climate Innovation – The Role of Startups

With temperatures rising and time running out, the climate crisis has become one of the biggest challenges of our time. Now more than ever, it needs stakeholders from all sides to come together to create change. How can startups work together with government, big business, NGOs and more to create innovation that contributes to solving the climate crisis?

This is where greenstart comes into play: The Climate and Energy Fund of the federal government is looking for startups and business ideas with innovative and CO2-saving business ideas to help solve our biggest global challenge.

We are celebrating the launch of the 5th edition of the greenstart program by the Climate and Energy Fund with an evening dedicated to all things climate innovation. Join us for a presentation of the greenstart program, followed by a multistakeholder panel discussion on the role startups play in accelerating climate innovation and protection. Afterwards, you’ll get the chance to dive deeper into four climate innovation topics as we break out into roundtable discussions, led by inspiring experts and greenstart alumni. To finish the evening, connect to the greenstart and Impact Hub Vienna community while enjoying a drink and some snacks.
