The Circular Economy concept drives innovative practices and business models targeting sustainable economic growth while increasing resource efficiency. The study reported in this paper aims at bringing together supply chain research and industrial cases inspired on circular economy. It represents empirical investigations into the start-up companies, who are using waste or left-over material as a resource and explores how do these companies develop and manage their supply chains. The results of this paper highlight the importance in getting control over the supply and challenges in attracting partners.
