Startup Odense Community Meetup Special Edition: Host – Odense Renovation

September 26 @ 16:00 - 18:00

Circular economy – How to build a sustainable business from waste

Want to create your own circular and sustainable business project – and maybe even get the chance to get it funded?

Startup Odense and Odense Renovation A/S invite you to participate in an inspiring workshop and networking event with like-minded entrepreneurial people from the entire startup ecosystem – and start your weekend off in the greatest way.

Circular economy and sustainability are on everyone’s lips at the moment, including the need to reduce waste and reuse more. If you take an interest into such themes this is just the event for you. The special edition meetup will take place in the context of an EU funded project, “Circular in Odense” that aims to develop innovative waste solutions to support circular economy.The event will feature some of the startups that are already partners in the project, who will provide an insight into developing circular and sustainable products and concepts – from identifying the purpose and business idea, to the pitfalls and carrying through despite it all.

Afterwards we will facilitate a workshop that intends to inspire to new circular and sustainable business ideas that can help reduce and reuse waste. Is it for example possible to make business from a broken blender? Or turn torn textiles into something useful? If you come up with something good, there’s a chance to apply to become part of the project and receive funds for developing your idea further.

So come on and join us for this special event to learn about starting up a circular and sustainable business. And who knows? Your idea might be the next to be funded by ‘Circular in Odense’.
