During the 2-month fast-track program, we match startup solutions with enterprise challenges. Startups tackle a challenge presented by a market-leading enterprise and explore potential pilot or market alliances in target technologies and industries. Our enterprise-startup matchmaking approach will enable you access to enterprises to build a pathway to sustainable partnerships.
How does it work?
Future Hub will kick off with startup-corporate matchmaking where startups will be introduced to specific challenges of enterprises and given an opportunity to learn more about them. Then teams will enter eight weeks of acceleration along the explore-build-test-refine pathway.

We have a network of mentors who are experts in sustainability and business fields or founders of startups themselves. Every week you will receive guidance & mentoring from a global mentors pool through 1:1 executive coaching on sustainability, corporate collaboration, and various business topics.
If startups and the GreenTech community are your passion and you believe you can advise startups on either a sustainability topic or a business domain (legal, marketing, UX, data, etc.), apply for the Future Hub mentor position. If we believe you can add value to the program, we will be happy to welcome you to the Future Hub community.
