This session is part of DIF x CE100 Startup Day. A day devoted to showcasing startups and their role in disrupting the market and enabling a shift towards a circular economy.

Big players in the winter sports equipment industry are deeply committed and making a huge impact on climate change awareness, but the boards used are still being made with inefficient processes, harmful materials and turn into mountains of trash at the end of their life cycle.

Nairoby's challenge is to redesign the industry's linear model and make the whole sports experience circular.
