What do you hope (expect) Circular@Scale will bring in the market?
Scale-up ventures equipped with clear priorities in the next step of their scaling journey and an appetite to deliver outsize impact in the circular economy. New and actionable insights on what it takes to scale in the industry.
Why are projects like Circular@Scale important?
Wolves alone hunt rabbits, wolves together hunt bison. We will not be able to change this huge industry unless we collaborate.
Why should scale-up join the program?
It takes courage to scale. Circular construction is unexplored territory and taking on this challenge is not for the faint of heart. Partners should join if they are ready to discover something new and leave a meaningful legacy.
Florent Maccario, Sr Researcher at ScaleUpNation
Florent is responsible for conducting research on circular construction as part of the programme (workstream 1). His work aims to highlight best practices and success factors for scaling in the built environment sector.
For more than a year, we investigated the challenges that scale-ups face in the rather traditional construction industry. As summarized in our latest white paper on “Circular Economy at Scale”, we found various barriers to scaling in circular construction, and have made it our job to translate them into success factors.
During the third edition of the annual ‘Nationale Conferentie Circulaire Economie’ by the Ministerie van Infrastructuur en Waterstaat, we’ve hosted a masterclass on exactly this topic.
