Calling all, Nordic, circular economy start ups!
Should the global population reach 9.6 billion by 2050, the equivalent of almost three planets could be required to provide the natural resources needed to sustain current lifestyles.
For this very reason, we decided to design a program that will support Nordic start ups adressing the most pressing issues of current consumption and production patterns!

How many of us needs to be present during the program?
As many as possible, however we completely understand the busy schedule of a dedicated entrepreneur. Therefore, the expectation is that at least one person per team physically show up for the check-in and lectures that will take place in Copenhagen. We make reasonable exception (f.ex closing a deal with a customer, client, sponsor or other important leads).
How many hours per week is required to follow the program? (i.e show up for lectures, assignments, check-in’s,etc)
About 15-20 hours.
Note: Almost all of these hours will be spend working on your start-up, sharing your challenges and learning from people who will be a valuable addition to your network.
Are participants expected to share specifics about their business, idea or concept?
Yes. Sharing is caring, especially in the impact space! If you’re not ready to share, this program is not for you.
Is there a trial period for both parties to evaluate a good fit?
Yes. Within the first month, if either party concludes it’s a bad fit, the contract is terminated.
Notes. Remember to take notes. You will be bombarded with valuable insights, knowledge, tips, advice and tangible tactics. If you’re not taking notes, you are not the start-up we’re looking for.
