Brian shares his journey as Business Development Manager with Circularise, a startup providing truly innovative solutions to provide transparency into complex supply chains.  We discuss the broad picture of Circularity in general, and specifically how their blockchain solution can provide these insights.  Circularise is part of the Startup in Residence programme with the city of Amsterdam.

bio

Brian works as a Business Development Manager at Circularise. He is especially interested in how open-source technology can contribute to standardisation and enable companies, governments but also consumers to make more sustainable (and eventually even fully circular) decisions. 
 
By working with clients from different sectors everyday he is aware of their needs, and current limitations, to become more sustainable. Together with the team he provides them with the tools to bring transparency to their supply chains, while safeguarding their data security and privacy, thereby creating an ecosystem where information on sustainability and circularity is a given instead of the exception.
