Webinar event series x 2

NSW Circular is partnering with Boomerang Labs for 2 x series of webinars which have been developed by Boomerang Labs in conjunction with NSW Circular in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The “Entrepreneur” series and the “Startup Meetups” series are both intended to inspire and educate Australia’s emerging circular economy eco-system by inviting industry leaders to share their stories and perspective. This is part of Boomerang Lab’s work to continue to support startups and engage the whole CE community during this time of isolation, and NSW Circular’s goal to bring together and promote engagement around developing a circular economy.
