Support growth, think long-term and execute innovative ideas.
We demand and encourage entrepreneurship.
About us

We see ourselves as a sustainable and long term oriented business community. Demand and encourage responsible entrepreneurship is our mission statement.

We highly value economic substance and organic growth. The companies within the Green Lifestyle Group not only profit from synergies and Germany’s largest media reach for consciously consuming people, but are also supported with administrative processes.

This includes mapping and integrating operational business processes such as accounting, controlling, reporting and cash management or help with tax or legal related questions.

This enables our portfolio companies to focus all their efforts on the product and their respective market.
