Circular Economy and the new entrepreneurial and social revolution

About the event

Why Circular Economy and Entrepreneurship?

Entrepreneurship has been identified as one of the key drivers of sustainable economic growth – it creates new businesses, drives and shapes innovation, speeds up structural changes in the economy, and introduces new competition. Therefore, entrepreneurs will be leading the transition to a circular economy. Regional and local authorities have numerous tools at their disposal to support that shift. As the paths towards circular economy differ between regions so do policy measures that can be deployed. Ensuring a successful transition to a circular economy requires efforts on many different fronts.
