Circular Economy Report
The world faces a climate crisis and India’s environmental situation is especially precarious.
One way to help clean up this mess is by turning waste into resources – this is known as the Circular Economy. The global opportunity for the Circular Economy is expected to touch $4.5T by 2030. But here’s the strange thing: entrepreneurial activity in this space is yet to pick up (it represents only 2% of our deal flow).
Why aren’t we seeing more entrepreneurs tap into the Circular Economy? Three reasons, or the 3Cs – cost, convenience and consciousness.
Through the lens of these three pillars, we’ve suggested five emerging business models that should help unlock enormous value in the Circular Economy. Our attempt here is to create a playbook for entrepreneurs looking to build businesses in this space, while defining the funding landscape for the Circular Economy in India.
