Creditplus launches a new Start & Pulse Challenge on “Green Transformation”

Sustainability is the goal of Creditplus’ new call for startups which takes place in Germany from 12 January to 24 February 2023. To this end, Creditplus works with Germantech, a company specialized in promoting innovation.

With the fourth edition of its startup challenge, Creditplus seeks to implement sustainable processes and value creation chains in its financing activities. The priority is to ensure the success of its “Green Transformation”, a major strategic ambition of the company.


As a specialist in consumer loans, we want to render a substantial contribution to the green transformation of the German economy. This is why we are looking for start-ups that can help us develop into a sustainable bank, with new approaches that we have not yet considered.

Stephan Baumann, Head of Strategic Product and Innovation Management, and Jana Rau, Innovation Manager of Creditplus

Startups from the entire European Union can apply up to 24th February 2023 in four categories: “Green Banking”, “Green Measuring”, “Green Facilitating” and “Green Initiative”.


The top ten start-ups will present their innovative solutions at the Start & Pulse Pitch Day in Stuttgart on 3 May 2023. The top 3 will receive a prize of 2,000 to 5,000 Euros. As part of a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) project, the winning startup will build a prototype with Creditplus. In addition, joining Crédit Agricole Consumer Finance’s Start & Pulse open innovation programme allows the winner to benefit from Crédit Agricole Group’s international network.
