07.05.2018 – the new PlanB Start-Up Competition starts
PlanB is your chance to move forward with your „green“ business idea. Join us and learn, why Bavaria is the place to be for green, sustainable bioeconomy start-ups!
In case you aim to contribute to a healthier planet and a better future for our society by developing a smart, sustainable and biobased business idea, then search no more! PlanB is for you! PlanB is THE Bavarian competition for „green“ startups and young entrepreneurs. Initiated in 2014 by a group of strong partners in the fields of industrial biotechnology, green chemistry, agriculture and forestry as well as partners from politics and finance / VC. With PlanB, we specifically address the needs of business founders along the bioeconomy value chains and support you on your own special way into entrepreneurship.
Bavaria is one of the top locations for biotechnology, life sciences and bio-entrepreneurship in Germany. At the same time, it is THE German frontrunner in agriculture and forest industry. Needless to say: if you think biobased economy, you think Bavaria! Therefore, with PlanB, we have designed a competition specifically dedicated to business founders, bio-entrepreneurs and those with just a vague idea in mind: be it energetic or chemical material use of biobased resources or residues, new ideas for biobased circular processes, or wood design: as long as you focus on founding your own business, work along biobased value chains and have a connection to Bavaria, e.g. via markets, sites, partners etc., PlanB is your place to be. We accompany you on your way to develop your idea and business with a broad expert network and individual support.
The conditions for participation are easy: you participate with your green, biobased business idea – you can participate as an already founded startup (not older than 5 years) or just with an idea or a concept. Your business idea should target sustainable, biobased solutions for the bioeconomy value chain and should incorporate Bavaria to a certain extent, be it as feedstock source, market, site or partnering region.
