FESTIVAL FOUNDERS

Sven Krüger

For Sven Krüger, green technologies are what life is all about. He studied to be an engineer and has been working on this topic for over 20 years. After starting his career as a developer for simulators, he worked for the European Commission, a national project implementing agency for the Ministry of Research, Economics and the Environment, after which, together with Marco Voigt, he founded the GreenTech Awards and recently, the GREENTECH FESTIVAL.

Marco Voigt

Marco Voigt is a green series founder. It all started with PIN AG, the most sustainable postal service. Marco is an engineer with a passion for marketing. After his first experiences with Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG and working as a consultant for the EU, the Ministry of Research, Economics and the Environment, he continued his work with Sven Krüger, founding the GreenTech Awards. He followed that up with GREEN WINDOW, a communication platform for the green lifestyle, and now the GREENTECH FESTIVAL. Marco is fascinated by the opportunities offered by green technologies. Like his partners, he is passionate about finally giving green innovations a bigger platform.

Nico Rosberg

After winning the title of the Formula 1 World Championship, Nico has climbed to the top of the Motorsport Olympics to face new and exciting challenges. As an advocate and entrepreneur, Nico wants to help the groundbreaking green innovations to make their breakthrough today. Hence the idea to create a unique, unprecedented festival – the GREENTECH FESTIVAL. He believes that the enthusiasm of many people is essential for successfully initiating crucial changes towards a sustainable lifestyle.

“It’s about time that we finally bring together all those who can make moves in green technology: start-ups and corporations, environmental activists and politicians, researchers and CEOs, crown princes and completely average consumers.”

Marco Voigt

“That’s the only way to bring the enormous potential of green technologies to life. We need to inspire and captivate as many people as possible. We grossly have to accelerate the positive change.”
