"Since our first appearance at the festival, we have not only met inspiring people such as Prof. Dr. Dr. Schellnhuber, but also learned how direct contact with customers can lead to real projects - for example in the digitalization of ESG data for real estate funds. For me as a founder, this experience was a valuable key to implementing innovative ideas."

We foster collaborations for impact

By connecting GreenTech start-ups, corporates, and impact/ ESG investors, the IMPACT FESTIVAL is accelerating the green transformation.
