Business4Change is a 2-day hackathon contest, organised to 'hack' or solve issues businesses are facing in their transition to the circular economy. The hackathon emphasises the potential of social innovation and the role of new business models in the circular economy. Business4Change is an initiative of the European Commission and will take place on 16-17 November 2020 within the European Business Summit at the Egmont Palace in Brussels, Belgium.
Over the course of 2 days, different teams will compete against each other to come up with innovative and creative solutions to solve a practical challenge related to the circular economy. The challenges are selected in collaboration with challenge owners and experts representing companies, associations, and NGOs. Leading up to the hackathon, selected experts will share their knowledge on the circular economy with the participants. Challenge owners will provide attractive prizes to the winners of the hackathon.
