The transition to a more sustainable world has never been closer and it takes more than money to transform a great idea into a world-changing business. At NextSTEP we help founders with SMART MONEY (money + competences + network).
The transition to a more sustainable world has never been more necessary.
NextSTEP (NextEnergy Sustainable Technology for the Planet) is an investment initiative by NextEnergy Group, dedicated to the capitalization and growth of innovative startups in the field of environmental sustainability. NextSTEP also benefits from the participation of Professor Carlo Bagnoli of Ca ‘Foscari University of Venice – a full professor of Strategic Innovation and scientific director of VeniSIA – as well as Claudio Colombo – the Accelerator Program Director of VeniSIA – and Strategy Innovation Srl – a University spin-off that deals with business model innovation.
At NextSTEP we support startups with SMART CAPITAL (funding + expertise + networks). We provide capital to founders and assist them in identifying a market fit, developing a scalable product, building the best team and scaling their business.
What we do
We invest early in the next top Climate Tech businesses. We know that every business has different needs, so we get involved in the early stages and provide fair, flexible equity funding options.
We accelerate the funded startups through a seven-month Acceleration Program that covers Communication, Product, Marketing & Sales, Team & Talent. We don’t accelerate in batch, we create one-to-one tailor-made programs for our funded startups.
From ideas to successful companies. Through NextSTEP Startup Studio we create companies and startups with the aim to solve the biggest sustainability challenges. Our method works in four phases: Ideation, Discovery, Validation and Launch.
