NextGen Consortium: Innovative Packaging

An invite-only special event to learn more about companies tackling global waste issues.

We will bring together a host of impact investors during Climate Week, NYC, for networking, light refreshments, and six fast pitches. We’ll be joined by our NextGen Consortium Partners - Starbucks, McDonald’s, The Coca-Cola Company, Yum! Brands, Nestlé, Wendy’s, IDEO, and WWF - to see six of the teams in our NextGen Circular Business Accelerator pitch their reusable, recyclable, or compostable packaging solutions.

The pitch event will be followed by a reception for networking and connecting around investment in the circular economy. The circular economy is rapidly gaining traction across the U.S. and offers a new economic model that is both profitable and sustainable.

Please note this is an invitation-only event for investors. If you are an investor and interested in attending, please email for more information.
