Accelerating smart green startups, investors and corporates
Ecosummit is Europe’s leading smart green innovation and impact conference for startups, investors and corporates in Berlin, Amsterdam and London. The European cleantech industry grows faster if all stakeholders jointly manage to build big startups aiming at big impact. Therefore, Ecosummit fosters fast startup development, open innovation, public dealflow, co-investing, corporate venturing and the cooperation between impact investors and VCs. We focus on smart green energy, mobility and buildings – the 3 pillars of the Energiewende. We love smart, green and lean startups that make and sell intelligent and resource efficient products in a capital efficient way. We promote early and late stage startups during their entire lifecycle from seed investment until exit.
Since 2010, we organised 11 international conferences in Berlin (7), London (3) and Düsseldorf (1) with over 2.250 participants and 400 startup pitches. Our main online marketing tools are Ecosummit TV, Ecosummit Market and Ecosummit Award. Ecosummit TV on YouTube provides 500 videos of the best companies that presented at our events and surpassed 200K video views. Ecosummit Market is the open platform for smart green startups to support fundraising, recruiting and business development. The winners of Ecosummit Award 2016 are Kiwigrid, Mobisol, Kebnoy, Lumenaza, BEN Energy and Electrochaea.

Smart green city
Every city wants to be a smart green city. The urban transformation should start with a smart green building like the Crystal that proves what can be done by implementing the best technologies in the market. The Crystal may soon be surrounded by a smart green city quarter that integrates a large number of buildings and serves a critical mass of companies and citizens enjoying a smart green lifestyle. The ultimate vision is a smart green business cluster that acts as a transparent marketplace, accelerates the transformation of the entire city and invites copycats all over the planet. Let’s transform our cities into smart green cities.
