Our goals

The primary goal of green:field is to put business on a level playing field. In contrast to many standard accelerator programs or incubators, individual partnerships and coaching sessions are the main focus.

Of course, by collaborating with startups, we want to access new technologies and business models. But mainly we want to build sustainable relationships with promising startups with excellent ideas and, in the process, benefit from their dynamic, agile and creative culture.

Our goal is to become a partner and paying customer and support startups with their entry into the market.

Case: Our ventures

Solytic is the first of our ventures and develops a solar PV monitoring software for professional O&Ms, while applying new technologies such as Big Data, Data Analytics and Machine Learning to improve operations.
