Creating business through circular design

CIRCO powers the development of the Circular Economy, driven by Design. Companies work together with designers on developing circular products, services and business models. They do so by sharing knowledge, experience and inspiration with their network.

Circular Business Design Track

During three intensive workshop days, a group of ten companies discovers new opportunities for their company and start up circular business using a circular design approach. The CIRCO approach and tools are based upon the Products that Last framework of Technical University Delft. At the end of the CIRCO Track, the companies have a concrete implementation plan for a circular product, service and/or business model.

Circular Design Class

As a creative professional, you play an important role in creating circular business. During this one day Circular Design Class, a group of ten to fifteen creative professionals learn the ins and outs of circular design. They practice the application, and are inspired to play their role as circular change agent.
