Circular Engine has guided Omrin in the realization of the new strategy and in particular the route to a distinctive circular proposition.

Developing a circular vision, defining our circular waste processing concept and determining the relevant communities were important pillars of her work.

Nicole is a smart young woman with a clear vision of a circular economy, a healthy portion of critical thinking and the competences to make the right connections. I highly recommend working with Circular Engine.

John Vernooij

CEO, Omrin waste treatment

Through her knowledge, network, and supportive leadership, Nicole has helped many of my projects gain the traction and important insight into circular economies that they needed to grow.

Nicole helped turn our MIT Energy Hackathon event into a replicable model used by other top-tier institutions.

She also helped my international environmental restoration organizations, Beyond Coral and CHARM, gain the necessary traction through her university and United Nations platforms.

Without question, Nicole’s guidance and support have been a great benefit to my organizational mission and I would highly recommend working with Circular Engine.

Stephen Rodan

President, Beyond Coral Foundation

Nicole means a lot to OG Clean Fuels. She’s led our strategy process for Public Affairs and is pushing hard on the data-side for getting equal policy treatment of all sustainable fuels: a critical requirement to make the circular economy feasible and affordable.

Nicole is very knowledgeable, investigates topics in detail, and presents the findings in a creative and clear way. For example, we now have an interactive dashboard for sustainable road transport. How cool is that?! Lastly, she helped to set up a new department, and provided training and support for our new employees.

Still in doubt?

We designed the Circular Business Models program to give entrepreneurs and professionals a flying start in the circular economy. Below are a few reasons that may be an objection for you to start – with solutions.

I don't know if I can create a business model myself

No worries! We take you through the process in a step-by-step way, so that you are guaranteed to have workable documents. You can ask all your questions in the work sessions and Q&As.

I don't have time to make a circular business model

Our advice: don’t do it alone! Involve teammates and colleagues in this. By taking action now, you are ahead of the regulations and your competition. In our experience it costs organizations much more time if they have to create a circular business model at the last minute.

I believe this course is pricey

With guidance of Circular Engine, entrepreneurs have been awarded various subsidies, won competitions and tenders. The amounts vary from EUR 300,000 to EUR 1.5 million. As a result, some of them created a solid stream of income for the next 10 years. In short: you will earn back this investment.

By bundling our effective methods and offering them in course form, we can help more entrepreneurs at the same time and offer you the knowledge in a more affordable way than in our 1:1 consultancy trajectories.

I don't have a product yet

We recommend you to start with a tangible product in mind. However, through this program you’ll gain plenty of inspiration.

Did you know that circularity is expected to generate trillions of dollars for the economy by 2030?

Companies that successfully respond to this not only reduce their footprint, but also have their turnover increase exponentially.
