Many start-ups and young entrepreneurs bringing fresh and disruptive ideas to the market need expertise on circular business models and cannot benefit from sustainable market opportunities.
CircularStart addresses this challenge and aims to deliver new innovative training material on sustainable and circular business models. During the project, the learning material will be tested with incubators and published on this website.
With increased knowledge of Circular Economy, start-ups can evaluate and improve the environmental, social and economic impacts of their business ideas right from the beginning.
The project brings together nine partners from four EU countries. The project is a 2-year ERASMUS+ Strategic Partnership funded by the European Union through SEPIE, the Spanish National Agency for International Education.
The main output of the CircularStart project is the online course, which aims to help Startups integrate and apply Circular Economy and sustainability principles and strategies into their business models. It is divided into four-course modules based on the themes of Ideation, Integration, Validation and Implementation. The contents are designed as a self-paced learning experience and are free.
