The city and port of Amsterdam are challenging startups to pitch ideas that can contribute to growing the Dutch capital’s circular economy.

The country’s government has already said it plans to make Holland’s economy circular by 2050. And initiatives like the Amsterdam Circular Challenge will help pave the way.

Now in its second year, the challenge is run by Clean Capital, Climate-KIC and Rockstart. Interested parties – with innovative circular ideas – have until 1 September to apply.
