The Business Boot Camp (BBC) aims to provide focused skills and knowledge to e-waste entrepreneurs based in developing and emerging countries. The boot camp will enable the participants to connect to investor networks and European recyclers to extend their business opportunities, and to support the development and setting up of environmentally and commercially sound e-waste management solutions.
Including hands-on workshops, mentoring clinics and expert inputs, the 5 day curriculum will address specific topics relevant for e-waste businesses, including business models, legislative, regulatory and technical environments, reporting requirements, processing and treatment technologies and standards, market scoping and assessment techniques, financing requirements, funding opportunities, formalisation/partnering with informal workers etc.
The first edition of the BBC will be held in Berlin, Germany from 10-14 September 2018. The proposed number of participants is a maximum of 20 businesses, limited to one participant per business. Participants will be selected through a rigorous application and referral process.
Due to technical glitches, we are granting an additional two weeks to apply, with the new deadline extended to 15th June.
