7 7 The Future Movement Towards Circular Economics: The 5 R’s CreateMakeSell/Serve Shrinking Resources Overflowing Land Fills Old paradigm: Linear Business Model Conventional Value delivery model New Paradigm: Circular Business Model* 1. Reclaim 2. Reverse Logistics 3. Recover4. Re-Entry 5. Repurpose Enhanced Value Recycle Model Conventional Value Delivery Component * Partha S Ghosh Model

8  We provide impoverished individuals with access to experimental workshops where ideas can be tested, developed, and launched in rural Indian villages  This is facilitated through the use of financing, volunteering, business mentoring, championing of local consumers, and soft technologies  Innovation centers will generate eco- friendly, energy efficient solutions 8 Innovation Centers Incubators & Innovation Labs at the bottom of the pyramid Proven Applications to break old habits Trickle down of Upgraded Solutions
