Our highlights & success stories

GreenSignal

''The program THE MISSION Construction exceeded our expectations in so many ways and we were delighted to be surrounded by so many kind and dedicated people, all looking to enable solutions that can contribute to tackling the defining challenges of our generation.''
- Gregory, Team GreenSignal

OneSpot

OneSpot brings commercial mixed-use hubs to downtown locations in medium to large cities. Our main customers are sustainability-conscious companies that manufacture, store and deliver products to their end users in the city via last mile delivery or want to do so in the future. The idea is based on the problem that an ever-increasing demand for space from e- and q-commerce meets an ever-decreasing supply of logistics space.

Bain & Company

„Sustainability is a topic in every board room. We as Bain & Company do very much in the areas of social impact. The startups from THE MISSION have great business ideas in sustainable business fields and by supporting them we can create direct impact. That’s why we give the teams access to our expertise and to our methods.”

Knauf

“Knauf doesn’t think in quarters or annual accounts. We think in generations and this long term orientation is why we want to support the THE MISSION startups. We recruit talents, participate in innovative ideas and we want to set an example by taking on responsibility.”

Handelsblatt Media Group

''THE MISSION unites again and again very different people: experienced market leaders from an industry and rising talents with fresh ideas and this focused interaction creates ideas, which can’t be found elsewhere.''

GOLDBECK

''With THE MISSION we have all the possibilities and all the levers in our hand to actually do something great now. We are living in challenging times overall on the world and especially also in our sector, the construction industry. That is, why we are glad as GOLDBECK to be one of the major partners of THE MISSION.''

IFFcon - Unlocking the potential of digital tools in the construction sector

THE MISSION environment not only sparked our curiosity to deal with various stakeholders. By providing us with valuable workshops and methodologies to enhance our idea and mindset, it also allowed us to experience a steep learning curve throughout the entire program. A big thanks to Futury!“
