Introducing the CO x Small But Perfect Hub

Connect with project partners, SMEs and professionals from around the world through this Hub, and access resources and training as the project progresses. CO is a supporting partner for a cross Europe collaborative project, Small But Perfectly Formed (SBP). The project aims to accelerate the success of small and medium-sized businesses with sustainable and circular models.

Community support is crucial for the small and medium-sized enterprises that are looking to transition to new circular and sustainable business models. 

That’s because the status quo is a growth and profit-primacy mindset, one that doesn’t put the people and the planet first. A move away from the legacy business model requires resilience, resources and advice from those who have done it successfully or are on the journey. 

Connect with such change-makers on the Small But Perfect Hub on CO by joining the Small But Perfect Circle on CO.
