Looking for a co-founder to build and grow a startup that contributes to our transition to a circular economy? Join the first joined Co-lab by StartLife and YES!Delft on Wednesday, 23 March. The program includes a specialized workshop aimed at helping you find your co-founder to co-build a startup with.

Find your co-founder!

There is a reason why people don’t climb Everest on their own. With a team, you can overcome obstacles that seem impossible just by yourself. Research over the past 4 decades has shown that startups that are co-founded by a team are more successful. In the Co-Lab workshop, as a single founder, founding team, or entrepreneurial-minded person, you’ll get the tools and connections to find that new member of your dream team to help you reach the top!

Theme: Circular Economy

In this co-lab edition, focus on matching (future) entrepreneurs who actively want to contribute to our transition to a circular economy.

In a circular economy, waste no longer not exist and products and raw materials are (designed to be) reused as long and intensive as possible over and over again. Waste is the new raw material.

The core tenets of the transition towards a circular economy are Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recover and Regenerate. These concepts often lie at the heart of the innovative technology and business models of circular startups and spinoff businesses. Let’s ensure that our planet remains habitable for future generations!
