Fail Forward | Circular Edition

Featured image

Only 9 per cent of the global economy is currently circular while adopting circular principles now could bring Europe net benefits of EUR 1,8 trillion by 2030. That is why Impact Hub Amsterdam hosts events, builds communities and runs acceleration programs around circularity. The next event on circular will be Fail Forward!

We believe that failure and experimentation are essential to developing innovative businesses that make a real impact. For the Circular Edition of our Fail Forward events, we are inviting circular impact entrepreneurs to share what they’ve learned from what went wrong. Listen to inspirational stories, get encouraged and leave with hope on the horizon ; )

Fail Forward line-up:
Speakers include Tiemen ter Hoeven of Roetz, Tynke van den Heuvel of Studio WAE and Dirk van der Beek of Boeren van Amstel.

19:30 Registration & drinks
20:00 Speakers & Q&A
21:30 Drinks

Fail Forward is part of The Impact Days and is organized in partnership with the Province of Noord-Holland.
