The Orchard
1 Great Cumberland Place
United Kingdom

Gain insights from circular entrepreneurs of the ReLondon community on how they work to deliver SDGs and contribute to circularity, and how a circular model impacts both environmental and commercial aspects.

Enjoy some mouth-watering and ethically sourced refreshments from The Orchard, followed by a panel discussion with ReLondon's circular economy entrepreneurs, facilitated by Ehab Sayed, Founder and Chief Evolution Officer of BIOHM, a multi-award-winning research and development-led biotech company.

As we move closer to 2030, this is the time to create circular businesses for a sustainable future. In this waste-to-value entrepreneurship event, we will answer, "What is the impact of running a circular business model compared to the traditional linear alternative from both environmental and commercial perspectives?"

This event is part of the CE Week 2023 programme. Please visit the CE Week 2023 website to see what else is taking place during the week: https://ceweek.london/event-2023/

Who is it for?
This event is for key industry players, start-up and scale-up entrepreneurs, and the general public who would like to understand how they can take part in the transition to a circular economy through businesses, and what are the benefits of changing from a traditional linear model to a circular business model.
