The concept

What is unique about The Green Idea?

The Green Idea is indeed a competition, but it is first and foremost a greenhouse for great projects. The event has a dynamic format with team building activities, workshops and inspirational talks in addition to the actual pitch competition.

Inspirational talks

The event starts with short talks by entrepreneurs and experts in the field of innovation and environment. See who’s speaking.

Innovation workshop

The innovation workshop promotes creative problem-solving and teamwork. The format of the workshop is built on openness and sharing, where you collaborate with other participants on improving both your own and others’ ideas. By getting fresh perspectives from people different from yourself, we believe your ideas will get a great boost that can help them grow into a real business.

Pitch competition

Here’s where the real competition kicks off! After the innovation workshop you have around 16 hours to prepare your pitch to the jury. You can choose to work in a team or as an individual. If you prefer to work with others but didn’t sign up as a group, we will do our best to match you with a suitable team.
