We solve the urgent challenges of today and tomorrow

"Without innovation, the green energy transformation will not be possible. To tackle some of the most critical challenges of our time and build solutions for a better future we collaborate closely with innovative startups. One of our initiatives in this field is the VERBUND X Accelerator. With this program we scout promising startups and connect them with leading corporations to work together on concrete pilot projects. To further increase the impact of VERBUND's activities in the startup scene we founded VERBUND X Ventures in 2022. VERBUND X Ventures is the Corporate Venture Unit of VERBUND which invests in innovative climate tech startups."

All seven start-ups delivered convincing pitches, proving they have the answers to some of the most critical challenges of our time. Together with their corporate partners, the teams are moving into the acceleration phase and will present the results of their proof-of-concept projects at our Demo Day in March 2023.

Highlights of our third edition

Together with our partners for this edition, we decided on 7 search fields.
For example, carbon capture, innovative energy storage, heat pumps, and solutions for PV surplus, amongst others.

We want to congratulate all our amazing start-ups and partners on their successful collaboration! In three cases, we have multiple corporate partners collaborating with one start-up on their use case. 🤝

This is a major milestone for us. Seeing industry-leading corporates putting their efforts and resources into joint projects is confirmation that we are moving in the right direction: towards green energy transformation. ♻
