20 October presentation Off the Grid

Hello open innovators, at our latest gathering at Open Innovation Capital we did an excercise on open source urban development. The outcome of this excercise will be shared with Amsterdams alderman on public space, Maarten van Poelgeest and directors of housing associations.

You are welcome to tag along: 20 October, 16:00-18:00 at Neef Louis in Amsterdam-Noord. Just let us know if you are going to attend so we can organise enough cookies to go with the tea and so we can send you a route-description.

See you soon,
open innovation capital team
