The need for solutions that enable us to live, work and innovate more sustainably is growing relentlessly. During Swiss Digital Days 2022, regional and particularly sustainable project ideas from driven entrepreneurs that preserve and protect natural resources received the attention they deserved at the “GreenTech Startup Battle”. With the format, we connected and strengthened regional startup ecosystems and gave them the opportunity to get in contact with established companies and public institutions. 20 selected startups from Switzerland received the chance to showcase how their sustainable ideas create an impact. A panel consisting of a jury and the audience decided on the seven finalists, who pitched in front of an exclusive jury for the win.
