Pepper Hamilton Sponsoring MIT's 'Finding New Opportunities in the Circular Economy - A Cleantech Event'

Presented by MIT Enterprise Forum of Cambridge. Pepper Hamilton is a sponsor.

The circular economy is huge. Accenture estimates that the circular economy represents a $4.5 trillion opportunity, according to its 2015 "Waste to Wealth" study. Those companies that have not already embraced circular practices are facing pressure from shareholders and consumers to ensure that products and materials are recovered and regenerated at the end of their service life. For many companies this signifies a seismic shift - a daunting but necessary business model transformation, replete with risks and opportunities.

Join to learn:

  • Where are the opportunities in this transition, especially for startups?
  • What makes the circular economy supply chain different from traditional supply chains?
  • How do we design products that can be "made to be made again?"
  • What new technologies will be required?
  • What are key criteria investors look for?
  • How can we best drive growth from a market or regulatory perspective?
