BGI will develop the “Circular 4 Good (C4G)” Program, funded by the Environmental Fund of the Ministry of Environment and Energy Transition, through the “Circular – Startups” line.
The program was designed by BGI to make the most of SMEs and Startups with projects in the circular economy areas, promoting the development and maturation of the participating companies’ business and operational models, in order to exploit the potential of the various circular economy strategies.
In this program, 25 selected SMEs and startups will participate in training sessions that aim to provide technical information and know-how in Circular Economy matters, including success stories, as well on market and investment themes
Following the training in Portugal, 10 companies will be selected to participate in a week of immersion in the largest US green tech incubator: Green Town Labs a community of scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs.
