What sustainability has to do with startups

Recent years have shown us that we have to transform our economy radically to make sure that future generations can enjoy a healthy planet and a democratic and just society. We are currently in a massive transformation that leaves no industry, no organization and no society untouched.

At Basel Area Business & Innovation, we are committed to support entrepreneurs that build the sustainable economy of the 21st century. We believe that innovation and new business concepts are the key to solve our most urgent challenges. Building an ecosystem where such business concepts can be tested and grown to successful companies is our recipe for progress and future prosperity for the region.

When it comes to sustainability we do not consider ourselves experts, but we are good students! In order to educate our ecosystem and ourselves, we organize stimulating events and facilitate networks that bring all of us forward.
