Climate-KIC believes that entrepreneurial thinking needs to be fostered, that is why they created the Greenhouse. A place for those who want to become entrepreneurs and are ready to start with a concrete idea. Whether your idea is not completely developed yet or you need some more time to perfect your already existing business plan, the Greenhouse programme is a place to be. It provides an informal and flexible environment to assess the market potential of your business idea, develop a business model and find out whether entrepreneurship is the future career for you. If you choose to continue with setting up a real start-up, Climate-KIC has a Entrepreneurship Accelerator programme to become successful in your future career as an entrepreneur.
Open to everyone
Whether you a are a national or international team of young students, advanced professionals or experienced researchers: the Greenhouse is open to everyone.
Climate-KIC funds a selected greenhouse project with up to €5.000 (50% grants, 50% coaching), and supports climate innovation ideas into sustainable business models and marketable products or services.
Get the knowledge you need!
Apart from funding, Greenhouse groups have the possibility of benefitting from up to 3 days of coaching. For example, participants can ask for professional advice on IP, marketing, finance, prototyping, customer validation or whatever you need to develop the best business plan you can.
