Join Shanghai's first ever Zero Waste Startup Weekend!
This weekend, we challenge you to rethink our daily activities in Shanghai and around the world through a zero waste mindset.
A weekend to create sustainable businesses that will change our planet.
Can we "reduce, reuse, refuse," even in an urban jungle like Shanghai? Can we move away from the "take-make-dispose" linear economy and redesign our future through the circular economy, where nothing that is made becomes waste?
Circular economy has so many business opportunities in high demand! Do you want to be part of this future?
What's different about this event?
To show that going zero waste is possible, we will make the entire event itself a green! We will limit disposables, source tasty, and recycle materials to minimize the waste sent to landfills.
What is Startup Weekend?
Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Powered by Google for Entrepreneurs, you will meet a dream startup team of innovators, marketers, developers and designers. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations to expert judges.
This event is for you if…
- You live a low waste lifestyle and want to expand your impact as an entrepreneur.
- You have a business idea (physical product, invention, mobile app) or sustainable initiative.
- You just heard about zero waste and want to learn more about recycling, repairing, composting, reusing and how to apply them to the real projects.
