At the end of the day, we are looking to grow a business.
No matter how interesting an idea is, if we cannot realistically scale it into a viable business, we will not be able to create the positive impact we are aiming to have.
Magazine names 500 of the fast-growing privately held U. companies annually], founding and subsequently selling modular home builder Pinnacle Building Systems, and being a member of the startup team of China’s decision has left us with a large domestic supply of recycled materials but an inadequate demand for those materials.
The NYC Curb-To-Market Challenge directly addresses this lack of demand both by funding a business plan that depends on recycled materials and by encouraging people around the country to consider recycled materials as a viable supply stream for manufacturing.
While organic waste is an abundant resource in need of solutions, the NYC Curb-To-Market Challenge is looking for a manufacturing solution.
Since there are limited applications for organics in traditional manufacturing, our challenge is focusing solely on non-organic waste.
While we do not exclusively focus on high-volume materials that have limited recycling markets, we certainly encourage applicants to find ways to employ these materials in their product designs.
The goal of the challenge is to have the biggest positive impact that we can in this space, and expanding one of these limited recycling markets would definitely help us accomplish that goal.
As a forward looking company we are continuously researching new technologies and further optimisations.
