Making digital companies sustainable

Set up in London in 2020, Circklo created the first Business Configurator in the world specialised in digital start-ups for the circular economy.

Circklo’s main expertise is in developing seed stage start-ups in the sustainability area. It offers start-ups both the opportunity to raise capital and accelerate their business and, also, to configure their business in such a way that purpose and profit can successfully coexist and complement each other in the 21st century digital world, fully using and embracing the principles of circular economy.

Why Circklo? 

Circklo was created to bring a solution for start-up founders that do not want to change their vision to adapt to the mindsets or impositions of investors.

In our Business Configurator Academy, it is the founders who choose their investors and not the other way round.

 Our Academy is solely dedicated to the mavericks, misfits, innovators, and ceiling breakers of the 21st century technology and science: it is a safe space for those start-up and SMEs founders who know they have more than just potential, they have the mindset to succeed.

 Our Configurator programme is highly personalised and practical, and it is not for the faint-hearted: it is not a race to the finish line, it is a marathon.

 While we cater for many businesses and industries, we are only open to very few: those who are fearless, who are not afraid to change the status quo, who push the boundaries of what is possible and acceptable, and those who understand that science and technology are the foundation of progress and business success.

 If you fit this profile, we are ready for you.
