Green Challenge DeepDive
Years Active: 2013 – present
The Green Challenge is one of the world’s largest competitions in the field of sustainable entrepreneurship. Each year the Postcode Lotteries seeks the 5 most green startups who receive prices ranging from €100,000 – €500,000. No shares, no returns, just support. Yet, to create impact, you need more than money alone. In 2013, DOEN Foundation and Postcode Lotteries therefore asked Rockstart to design a tailored support program for the finalists starting right after the award ceremony and continuing for 6 months, with the ultimate goal for the DOEN Foundation to invest in the startups afterwards. The support program entails mentorship for the startups to grow their business, develop their go-to-market strategies, and building a solid team. The highlight of the program is the DeepDive week: an intensive week full of workshops and events.
