Did you see the session hosted by the Green Alley Award at the Nordic Circular Hotspot on Wednesday 18 October?

Filipa Moita was joined by Laura Tirkkonen-Rajasalo and Julia Bialetska to discuss the Evolution of the Circular Economy through Startups.

Laura and Julia described the successful trajectory of their businesses – Sulapac Ltd and S.Lab – and their role as female pioneers in the circular economy.

As previous Green Alley Award winners, both companies have gone on to raise significant financing and work with big packaging players.

In September, traceless materials – another winner led by female founders – also secured funding to build an industrial-scale production facility for their sustainable packaging.

These companies are successful because of their revolutionary ideas to fight plastic pollution – and the talent of their people.

As Laura and Julia pointed out, they also benefitted from the Green Alley Award’s exposure and networking opportunities.

I’m glad that we played a small part in launching their success.

Now, we want to do the same for the next cohort of startups…

If you have a great business plan for the circular economy, why not take five minutes to apply for this year’s award via this link?

I am sure our previous winners show they can be a very worthwhile five minutes!
