Ready! Set! Go green!
Meet the startups


The dialogue with startups in the Green Transformation Incubator is of particular importance to us because it offers a unique opportunity to create synergies and drive innovation in the field of green technologies. Banks have substantial resources and experience in the financial sector, while startups often have fresh ideas and agile ways of working. Through the exchange, banks can benefit from the innovative approaches of startups while providing access to funding and industry-specific expertise. This interaction promotes the development of sustainable solutions and contributes to the transformation of the financial sector towards a greener economy.
