Amsterdam Circular Challenge

The Amsterdam Circular Challenge was the first regional challenge. During this challenge, companies like Waternet, Gemeente Amsterdam, Amsterdam Smart City and Afval Energie Bedrijf Amsterdam. Several teams came up with very innovative solutions for the business cases. Several examples where furniture made out of waterside waste of Waternet, a circular hardware store in Amsterdam and circular baby nutrition.

The winning team was Planq, who designed a chair made out of water side waste of Waternet. This team had such a good business case, causing them to found a successful start-up named Planq Design.
