Demo Day (Invite-only)

This special occasion also features the Demo Day (invite-only) of our Circular Textile Innovation Accelerator, which is part of the Circular Innovation Collective. Come see the entrepreneurs pitch their innovative solutions for a circular textile sector.

Please note: the Demo Day is invite-only, contact Maartje Janse at <> if you would like to attend.


After extensive research, the Circular Innovation Collective has identified the most urgent innovation gaps to create a circular textile chain. So we scouted [x] (inter)national startups and SMEs with high-value, innovative circular solutions in the areas of Refuse, Rethink, Reduce, Reuse and Repair.

The selected companies participated in various workshops and masterclasses on systemic change, strategic partnerships and material usage in the circular economy and received coaching and mentorship from sector experts, experienced entrepreneurs and finance professionals. 

What is the circular innovation collective?

Circular Innovation Collective (CIC), a collaboration of Metabolic, Impact Hub Amsterdam and Bankers without Boundaries, aims to play a leading role in the Dutch innovation ecosystem by accelerating the transition to a circular economy. The collective will implement its unique approach for the first time in the textile sector to support the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area’s goal of achieving 70% circular textiles by 2030. CIC is funded by the City of Amsterdam (Amsterdam Impact), DOEN Foundation and Goldschmeding Foundation.
