About the speaker
Robert a sustainability entrepreneur, studied economics in Munich Germany and founded during his bachelor a student event agency. After moving for his master to Copenhagen he sold his shares from the company and followed his passion for sustainable solutions. For his master thesis, he dived deeper into the circular economy at the case of electronic waste management. He started researching this topic for his bachelor thesis in 2015 and realized the huge environmental impacts and the not existing sustainable and circular business models. Next to graduating he founded a startup here in Copenhagen and started developing with the City of Copenhagen a circular business model for electronics at the newly opened recycling centre in Sydhaven. He also participated with two friends in the National Geographic Ocean Plastic challenge where they advanced into the second stage and will compete in December in Washington D.C. for funding of their circular business model. They plan to replace single-use plastic packaging in the food take-away and delivery sector with sustainable and reusable options.
