Bear’s Den

Growth companies: participants in the bioeconomy and circular economy growth track of KasvuOpen and Sitra’s list of the most interesting companies in the circular economy.


Six companies will get the chance to pitch and convince our panel of judges about their business plans in the Bear’s Den.  The name Bear’s Den derives from the grilling the companies will receive from our panel, and from you, the audience. The companies will not know in advance the questions they’ll be asked. 

*Part of “Circular Forerunners”– a group of WCEF2019 side events focusing on business and financing.
