We help companies creating circular business propositions

The circular economy does not arise by itself. CIRCO activates – with support from the Dutch government – entrepreneurs and creative professionals to (re) design products, services and business models in order to subsequently do circular business.

Supporting companies to get started with the circular economy

With a unique and proven design thinking method CIRCO helps companies with creating circular business propositions in cooperation with their value chain.

The method consists of Circular Business Design Tracks for entrepreneurs and Circular Design Classes for creative professionals in the sectors: construction, plastics, consumer goods and manufacturing.

International Hub network

We truly believe that a local partner who is part of the local ecosystem is the best way to create an impact with the CIRCO methodology abroad. Therefore CIRCO wants to structurally engage with local partners, who become self-sustainable CIRCO Hubs. The aim is to empower the Hubs to independently; activate companies to join; apply the design methodology for companies and designers; run a circular community driving a circular transition.
