The time is now to bring forward the opportunities for green investment and signal to all actors that Greater Copenhagen is the leading region for investment in sustainable innovation & solutions.

What is Green Gold?

Green Gold was a two-day interactive event that provided a platform to strengthen the green investment ecosystem in Greater Copenhagen. We have invited pioneers of the investment ecosystem and the most innovative startups to create networks and collaborations, inform about investment and funding opportunities, and provide opportunities for matchmaking.

Our goal

Showcase the Greater Copenhagen Region as an attractive base/powerhouse to launch green businesses, and support players within the green investment field to ensure more investments in green technologies.
