Over the past 6 weeks I have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to complete aninternship with etsaW Ventures as a circular economy researcher assistant. During myinternship, I was tasked with researching and then presenting to the team my findings ondifferent waste products that have exciting uses for the future, especially with increasedinnovation in the capturing and extraction of these otherwise waste products. I have beenpassionate about the circular economy for a number of years now, so I was delighted to beable to do some extensive research around the subject. The projects I was tasked with wereinteresting and have made me even more excited to begin my Masters as it will give me theopportunity to develop some of the skills, I learnt from the experts during my time withetsaW.
The team were really welcoming and supportive from the very first day and throughout the 6weeks, from answering WhatsApp messages and emails to taking time out of their busyschedules for zoom calls and even let me come to the stunning Soho office on a weeklybasis. Where I saw first-hand the great collaboration and operations of the inspiring team inan industry I hope to be in soon. I would like to thank David Greenfield, Isabelle Linden, Nick Wall, Sophie Thomas, and TheaBrook for helping me get the most I possibly could out of the 6 weeks through the projects Iwas tasked with as well as the insight into how great the sustainability and circular industryis!
