Being a Circular Innovation Challenge Mentor

We’re looking for circular economy, business development, manufacturing, impact assessment, and other industry experts to help our Finalists refine their product ideas, financials, and presentations for the final pitch and chance to win a grand prize of $10,000 cash, continued mentorship, and access to investors.

The Circular Innovation Challenge is a business pitch competition awarding cash prizes, mentorship, and access to investors for the best manufactured product idea produced from ‘waste’ or recycled materials. Eight finalists will be selected to hone their business plan and pitch. Winner(s) will be announced at a (virtual) LIVE event on June 23rd.

This program is inspired by Austin’s [Re]Verse Pitch and New York City’s Curb to Market competitions.

Presented by Seattle Good Business Network, in partnership with the City of Seattle’s Office of Economic Development, and made possible by a grant from the WA Department of Ecology.
