Making the way we live more sustainable is among the biggest challenges of our time. Today’s 'take-make-waste' linear model is not sustainable, which is why the transition to a circular economy is imperative to build a restorative and sustainable future.

To accelerate the circular transformation, The Circulars Accelerator, led by Accenture in partnership with Anglo American, Ecolab, and AWS and in collaboration with UpLink and the World Economic Forum, is supporting startups that are reinventing business in scaling their circular solutions.

On 11 July at 15:00 CET, we invite you to join us for the Closing Showcase of The Circulars Accelerator 2023. In this livestreamed session, we will recognize the achievements of the 16 startups that participated in this year’s accelerator program and hear from industry leaders and circular experts on the future of the circular economy.

As we gather for the Closing Showcase, we celebrate the visionaries, industry leaders, and entrepreneurs advancing the circular transformation.
