Together with the start-up expert Pioneers, they look worldwide for innovative start-ups who want to support Green Tech companies in their daily challenges in the business world.


Three Styrian recycling companies have set themselves innovative goals to grow in the future through new projects, business areas and processes. Together with the start-up specialist Pioneers, Komptech, Redwave and Saubermacher launched a scouting program. The aim is to find start-ups who have innovative ideas and want to support Green Tech companies in their daily challenges in the business world.


Phases of the project

After defining the search fields and criteria in a kick-off workshop with companies from the waste and recycling industry, Pioneers set out to find suitable start-ups worldwide. These top players of the start-up scene are then brought together with Komptech, REDWAVE and Saubermacher to create collaborations.
