Initially designed as The Circulars Award program - which received 1,500+ applications from 70+ countries over 5 years - the initiative has evolved to a six-month program connecting innovators and entrepreneurs with industry leaders and circular experts for tailored mentorship.
The program aims to catalyze circular innovation and unlocks opportunities for accelerator participants to work directly with cross-industry leaders to scale their circular solutions.
Application categories include:
- Innovating products and production
- Transforming consumption
- Recovering value
The Circulars Accelerator is led by Accenture in partnership with Anglo American, Ecolab and Schneider Electric, and run in collaboration with UpLink and the World Economic Forum.
