How to respond to changing consumer needs and move towards circular economy business models

New business developers and entrepreneurs


Consumers are requesting companies to be sustainable and move towards circular economy. This puts pressure on corporations but also opens up possibilities to engage consumers in building new business models. How have for example MUD Jeans and Fjong built their business around consumers’ willingness to participate in circular economy business models? How have Hesburger and Touchpoint collaborated to find new life for old staff uniforms?

Come and hear real-life stories from those who have already started and spar with our venturing experts on how to get started yourself.
