Having spend almost three years working closely with YES!Delft, we decided to extend our relationship and move into a new location in a vibrant and strongly innovative ecosystem for tech startups. Within this environment the Circularise team will be focusing on circular economy solutions backed by blockchain tech, while other innovative companies aim to make an impact in other key technologies of the digital society such as artificial intelligence.
This year’s edition of CES attended by Circularise team and other Dutch startups invited by StartupDelta is confirmed as the biggest show dedicated to consumer electronics. The massive annual event, attracted more than 188,000 people this year including members of the media, industry representatives, product buyers, financial analysts, and investors from all over the globe.

Next year, January 8-11, we will be going to The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2019) in Las Vegas, USA to present and discuss our communications protocol for the circular economy that can be applied in virtually endless range of product value chains. As part of StartupDelta delegation headed by Dutch Prince Constantijn, together with other entrepreneurs and innovators we will be representing Dutch startup scene to more than 182,000 industry professionals.
When Jordi and I decided to go the forum, we didn’t know what to expect. However, the organisation showed a lot of professionalism which gave us confidence to start planning our one-week trip to Arkansas!
At Circularise, we believe that cross industry cooperation is a key factor for innovation. That's why when we received an invitation to N3XTCODER's Hackathon on Supply Chain Transparency we immediately packed our bags and flew to Berlin.
We simply can not continue the way we, as a society, have been producing our goods and services. Products are build, used and subsequently thrown away. If we keep on disposing of these products and keep extracting resources at this rate, we as a species, in the long run, will be waist deep in trash and short on resources.
When one looks at the debate around supply chains today, the buzzword seems to be “transparency”. Why, then, is not transparency the way to circularity; and what is? We are going to argue in this article that the answer lies in a concept that we call “flexible transparency”.
