The Materials Marketplace is an award-winning regional and national platform to facilitate company-to-company industrial reuse. Through the cloud-based platform, traditional and non-traditional industrial waste streams are matched with new product and revenue opportunities, ultimately enabling the culture shift to a circular, closed-loop economy. In addition to diverting waste from landfills, these recovery activities generate significant cost savings, energy savings, and create new jobs and business opportunities.
[Re]verse Pitch Competition
The [Re]verse Pitch Competition is a social innovation program from the City of Austin and community partners including the US BCSD to help turn valuable raw materials that are currently leaving local businesses, non-profits, and institutions as waste into the foundation of new social enterprises. This four week program, run for the first time in November 2015, helped launch two new start-ups in the Austin area. Learn more at reversepitch.org.
