FAQ

    We are focused on startups at a pre-seed and seed stage, with B2B solutions with climate impact (including hardware and software products and services).
    Every batch will target different verticals, so we are open to startups operating in any industry during the year. We will be able to help startups from prototype to production stage, but also after who is already selling is more than welcomed.

    Each startup is asked to fill in the application form. These data will be used internally to create a profile of the offer, which will constitute the basis for the matchmaking with relevant stakeholders.

    For selected startups we are 100% free. We will charge only when a match has been concluded. We charge a 5% fee on investments and grants received thanks to the program, and a variable fee, agreed between the parties, on the contracts closed with clients matched through the program.
    For investors and companies, participation to the Sandbox Demo Day and the curation of first touch with startups is free. Any additional service fee, as Startups Scouting, will vary on request.

    We promote and support each member in our network in several fashion: by supporting the communication of their projects and expertise though our communication engine; by involving them in new projects where their competence is key; by offering access to our courses on circular economy, climate innovation, sustainability management, sustainable finance, etc.. and with early free access to the Sandbox Platform Beta that will facilitate finding the right partners also after the Sanbox Program is over (it will be launched by the end of 2022).
    Being in the ecosystem makes you closer to a community of people dedicated to the same cause, but on different paths, meaning you can always enrich yourself learning from peers. Moreover, the matchmaking process will make it easier for your projects to reach the right partners/clients/investments.
