|Hope to see you soon, Steve.|PlanetReuse Marketplace, along with 23 other promising startups, will participate in a 5-month program, completing branding and business strategy tasks, learning from mentors (Sir Richard Branson, Steve Case and Beth Comstock are on the roster) and documenting our success.
We are honored to be part of a program put on by the prestigious Wall Street Journal, and eager to get outside our comfort zones, develop our creativity and expand our thinking. Oh, and the whole thing is being taped.
|Getting camera ready|
We’ll have more to announce as the competition progresses, and we hope you’ll tune in to see us represent our company, the amazing Kansas City startup community and the future of reuse.

Help boost awareness about the reuse industry and YOUR reuse center by:
Since 2008, PlanetReuse has been working with construction and demolition professionals to reuse commercial building materials and keep them out of the landfill. This year, PlanetReuse launched PlanetReuse Marketplace, a website that connects residential reusers with reuse centers. By showcasing reuse centers and their inventories online, PlanetReuse Marketplace is making it easier for everyone to help reduce construction and demolition waste from 40% to 30% by 2020!
In this month’s Building Materials Reuse Association (BMRA) newsletter, PlanetReuse Marketplace and the BMRA are asking reuse centers…
- What are the most important aspects of managing a successful reuse center?
- What websites help draw new reusers to your front door?
- What business tools are you using to maximize your impact?
Know other reuse centers in your area? Please forward this message to them.
Not a reuse center, but interested in survey findings?
Results of this survey will be published for all members in an upcoming BMRA e-news bulletin and discussed at DECON'13 in Seattle.
Thanks for spreading the word!
