Get lucky!
You are invited to the second ‘Share, Mingle and Inspire’ meetup!

Openlab is launching a new meetup format that extends your network and brings new insights to tackle your challenges in the sector/branch you are operating in. We do this by asking you to present your challenge, failure or success to an audience of likeminded people. Inspire each other by sharing!

Presentation format - ‘Five by five’

Every presenter will get five minutes and five slides to share their story. As we are many that will attend to hear your thoughts we have a limit of five presentations per meetup. Each ‘Share, Mingle and Inspire’ will have a topic that attracts people with a certain passion or curiosity. 

Topic - Access to your Future!

Our topic will be ‘Access to your Future!’. We believe that everyone should be able to become the best version of themselves and to create their own future. Technology and access to it are crucial for this. Technology connects everything, including innovation, education, people, healthcare, transport and urban living. Giving people access to technology will help them to shape their own future and is a way to innovate for a better society.

In this ‘Share, Mingle and Inspire’ you will meet 5 inspiring initiatives who strongly believe in the  power of technology. You can expect stories about makerspaces, education, software and innovation.

Open Innovation

‘Share, Mingle and Inspire’ is centred around open innovation and will give guidelines how to share. Openlab is in favour of open innovation because we believe business and innovation are going in that direction and that we are also forced by societal and technological change to do so. 

So, why not start with attending ‘Share Mingle and Inspire’ and be part of the movement. You will get surprised how many people will support and share their experience with you and how it will profit your own goals.

Get lucky! 

'Luck is where opportunity meets preparation.' Seneca

Every meetup will also have a lottery where you can win nice prices. As (quote of someone successful person): ‘Becoming successful you need also a bit of luck!’

Join us here! 

Please send an email to if you want to be one of the presenters and share your story about Access to your Future!
