Smart ideas for a better world
Companies that focus on the topic of sustainability need their own platform and must specifically address the investors who specialize in this area. — We focus on bringing together companies and investors; about 70% of the presentations are companies seeking financing, solutions, customer contacts. — Our motto is: “Smart ideas for a better world”. In doing so, we deliberately provide a broad industry framework. After all, sustainability is a broad term that cannot and should not be narrowed down by industry.
- The need arises from the new zeitgeist. Resource and environmental awareness has long since ceased to be the preserve of a few “eco-spinners” and has now spread to all areas of the economy. This gives rise to a wide range of business opportunities and interesting technology — both of which are very interesting for investors!
Yes — Germany is — as in many industries — one of the pioneers in resource technologies and corresponding business models. This is of course also due to the rich research scene and the diverse competitions organized by both state institutions and private ones (Germany- Land of Ideas, Green Tech Awards, German Sustainability Award and various VDI., Fraunhofer, Leibniz and several university chairs etc.).
Very strongly, in fact — awareness of this is spreading: Technologies around efficiency, recycling, new materials (replacement of existing ones) are booming (“technologies to touch”). Creative energy technologies are booming. Energy storage is making progress.
Likewise, there are innovations from forestry and agriculture/nutrition with a strong upward trend. “Virtual technologies” such as upcycling, FAB concepts, collaborative consumption, second-hand goods exchanges are booming.
