Five organisations join the Circular Economy 100 as Emerging InnovatorsMay 26, 2017
As an innovation programme established to enable organisations to develop new practices within a circular economy, the CE100 brings together members from across the economy to provide unique opportunities for multi-stakeholder collaboration. Member groups include corporates, governments and cities, academic institutions, emerging innovators and affiliates.
Today, bioMASON, OSVehicle, Rubicon Global, Skipping Rocks Lab and Riversimple have all become members of the CE100, as Emerging Innovators. Each is an innovative business with a globally unique capability or process, and together they form a crucial part of the CE100, helping to unlock barriers to circular progress.
The organisations will bring innovative perspectives to the CE100 Acceleration Workshops, annual Summit and collaborative projects, as well as the opportunity to develop their growing businesses, learn about the circular economy, and develop and scale their ambitions more quickly.

bioMASON - manufactures economically viable, biologically-based materials for application in the built environment.
OSVehicle - provides a ready-to-use hardware platform to produce complete electric vehicles.
Rubicon Global - pioneers of the industrial internet of things (IIoT) in the waste industry, incorporating analytics and machine applications to gather, analyse and share big data and enable circular decisions.
Skipping Rocks Lab - produces economically viable alternatives to plastic bottles and cups. Ooho!, a biodegradable packet of water, is their first product.
Riversimple - a car company established to make a step change in the environmental impact of personal mobility by making fuel efficiency profitable.
The transition to an economy that is restorative and regenerative, by design, requires substantial innovation. Disruptive startups and small businesses fill crucial innovation gaps and their agility enables them to respond quickly to new circular opportunities. They help accelerate the pace of innovation for the whole programme by doing things profoundly differently.
