Description

Circulate CoLab aims to support new, innovative collaborations between businesses and/or not-for-profits across a supply chain that use circular economy approaches to reduce waste, emissions and/or packaging, and design for re-use and upcycling.

We are interested in working with teams of companies/ organizations to prototype ideas in a wide range of areas in the food, environment and construction, renovation and demolition (CRD) sectors. 

For instance:

  • Waste-reduction ideas that will improve the current Canadian food system
  • Material-loss prevention innovations that will provide a long-term benefit
  • Approaches to turn waste into new commercial products or services
  • New use for the excess, lost or wasted materials along your supply chain
  • A better way to connect those who have waste materials or by-products with those who can use it
  • New approaches to make or deploy reusable or compostable packaging
  • New design or product that reduces packaging and/or eliminates plastics from packaging and transportation
  • New process or technology that improves the predictability of material and resource use in large institutions

Program Overview 

  • Teams of at least 2 - 5 businesses or organizations apply with a circular prototype proposal that has the potential to scale if successful.
  • Successful teams receive:
    • $20,000 in prototype funding 
    • 16 weeks of support to implement their prototype
    • 6hrs in one-on-one mentorship 
    • Direct access to the COIL circular economy ecosystem of experts & practitioners 
  • Teams pitch their prototypes to a panel of COIL Advisory members for the chance to receive an additional $100,000 to fund a year-long Demonstration pilot project
