Fireside-Chat: Circular Innovation Through Startup & Industry Cooperation

How do we unleash innovation potential in Circular Economy? The entrepreneurial ecosystem in Germany and Europe is changing. According to some reports, 10-20 per cent of all purpose-driven start-ups in Europe currently focus on circularity.

Only through the interaction of all players - from politics, science, society, established industry and startups - circular innovation can really gain momentum. In our Fireside Chat, we focus on the interface between startups and established industry and on how to unfold best cooperation opportunities.

Together with Miki Yokoyama, Board Member of BDI Initiative Circular Economy; Advisor at UnternehmerTUM; Venture Partner at Pirate Impact Capital and Sebastian Daus, Co-Founder & CEO, FixFirst, we explore different questions:

  • How does circular innovation emerge in practice?
  •  At which points does startup spirit combined with the experience of established industry show its biggest benefits?
  • What opportunities for cooperation do exist?
