LOOP Ventures First Co-working Event in Helsinki

LOOP Ventures Partners and Ventures in Helsinki on 10 April 2019
  • Published 11/04/2019
Yesterday the Nordic Sustainable Business Transformation team (NSBT) travelled to Helsinki to be a part of the LOOP Ventures Bootcamp at Avanto Ventures’ offices.

The morning went by with getting updates from the ventures already a part of LOOP. In total 4 ventures have been launched with 8 corporate partners. They have received a lot of attention from the public and media. The venture between Kesko, Unilever, Metsä Tissue, Encore and Orthex Group is a great example of that. It is based on a subscription model where you get environmentally friendly household products delivered to your door. The loop is closed by the companies taking back the empty packaging and the plastic waste to recycling. The venture shows that there is a desire from consumers, for new ways of handling purchases and making sure that the solution is sustainable. The venture has already received over 300 applications.



In the afternoon more CE startups, corporates business developers and enthusiasts joined the co-working event to get inspired by the key note speeches by Finnish Reima and Norwegian Flokk and FJONG, as well as to learn more about the LOOP database which partners get access to and their possibilities for joining a circular venture. Head over to our Twitter to see how the event went.
