Winning the 2017 Circular Challenge 2017 enabled us to recruit a new employee - bringing our team up to 6. But it is not only a financial reward, we benefit from the tailored support of the  CITEO team as well as access to a large network of partners. The team helps us to structure our financial and commercial strategies, and we  are able to participate in a range of events, such as the ORÉE assemblies or the 2018 Hacking of the Paris City Hall annual event, allowing us to increase the visibility of our solutions. Thanks to this support we also receive advance information on evolutions in waste regulations and are in permanent contact with players in the mass consumption sector.

Hélène Hoyois and Thibault Gilquin,
Founders Do Eat

Our participation in the Circular Challenge literally changed our outlook at Do Eat. Within a short time - only 2 days! - we got answers to all our questions. The bootcamp experts enlightened us on how to evolve and provided advice and guidance. These 2 days broadened our vision and prompted us to rethink parts of the Do Eat strategy. During the competition, we also benefitted from a lot of meetings, each more interesting than the one before. Very concretely, the regular support of Circular Challenge with respect to our business model and commercial strategy was both relevant and effective. A very detailed follow-up is already underway to ensure Do Eat evolves in the best possible way.

Any questions?


The Circular Challenge 2018 edition will be starting soon.
