Even though it’s been a demanding year in many respects, I’m gratefully looking back at 2020. Covid-19 couldn’t stop the enthusiastic impact-driven creative/social entrepreneurs and innovators that I met during my courses, masterclasses, projects, advisory work.
Like Stijn van Kreij of Butterfly Effect NL, Cristina Pojoga and colleagues at Consolid8 Crowdfunding in Romania, Joeri van de RietBuurtgids, ‘Happy Soups’ students at CityLab Haarlem, Hogeschool Inholland / Inholland University of Applied Sciences, Jeanita Berkhout, Ephrem Tesfay and all the other pioneers in the Life Long Living program, Nikolett Madai, the team of Resortecs, Alina Bassi of Kleiderly and the other semi-finalists of the European Social Innovation Competition, Frank Wolff and Josje SchonagenStichting Drop-Inn, Okrah Donkor at TripleThreat, Astrid Clemens and Helen Couwenberg, Het Stadsparadijs, and the innovative students at 3ID LABS, Arteveldehogeschool.
And all the others, colleagues, partners, clients like Peggy van Schijndel, Janneke Vervloed, Ben Kaelen, Joris van Ballegooijen, Ronald Kleverlaan, Niels Bosma and Utrecht University team, Karel Vanderpoorten, Wolfgang Spiess-Knafl, Myrna Wiggers, Didi Spieksma, Sander Limonard and my former colleagues at Kennisland. I could go on…
Thanks for all the inspiring moments! Let’s keep up the Spirit in 2021!
