Business Model Challenge | Circular Edition

You have the green dreams – we hand you the business tools. Join the ranks of 350+ alumni and apply for our Business Model Challenge (BMC) incubator! In three months, you will finetune your business plan, strengthen your entrepreneurial skills, and expand your impact business network in a blended, on & offline programme.

Join this edition of the BMC if your business (idea) makes value chains more circular by using an “R- approach” (refuse, reuse, recycle, repair, refurbish, repurpose, and so on) or uses a circular business model, like lending, leasing, or product-life-extension.

We need to change the take-make-waste economy and turn it into a circular economy! How? 1. Design out waste and pollution 2. Keep products and materials in use 3. Regenerate natural systems. Do you have a business (idea) that is doing just that? Join the Business Model Challenge!
