Circular economy with Lassila-Tikanoja

L&T is looking for startups to co-operate in building circular economy. They have experience from several ways of co-operation and strongly believe that good co-operation is built on mutual trust and win-win situations. Therefore, L&T thinks that it is always important to plan the co-operation case by case. They have recent experience of for example:

  1. Joint service design projects and pilots: L&T can provide its assets such as its customer base, marketing reach and logistics.
  2. Commercial partnerships: L&T can become a channel for the startup’s product/service or white-label it.
  3. Customership and sales channel: L&T can become a (strategic) customer who delivers value for its end customers.
  4. Investments and acquisitions: L&T can become a strategic investor or acquirer.

Circular economy is a complex concept and playing field. When planning a new business there are several perspectives to be taken into account. With L&T’s expertise, they have been able to provide early stage teams with insights to avoid easy pitfalls. Therefore, they believe they can also be of value to early stage teams through for example pitching and feedback.
