Problem:
70% of our global population is headed to live in urban areas. As people move from rural to urban areas, they unlock diversity, opportunities and growth. Unfortunately, they also generate a lot more waste! An urban lifestyle is prone to waste generation as abundance of resources often leads to overconsumption and unsustainable processing of whatever is ‘thrown away’. Urban waste management is both a B2B as well as B2C industry - there are several companies that are selling their services of composting and waste collection products to other businesses, similarly there is an equal number of public and private bodies that focus on servicing individuals and households. It is up to you to decide which customers will you choose to service!

Deliverable:
Design a business plan in the field of urban waste management.
