This SXSW, we’re celebrating Dutch innovation at Spotlight on Holland

- an event showcasing some of the best entrepreneurs, startups and artists from the Netherlands. Held at Bar 96 at The Dutch Base on Monday, March 10th, 2014, the event will give SXSW attendees a chance to experience what the Dutch has to offer, by interacting with representatives from the worlds of Dutch art and technology.

4:30PM - Speakers representing some of the finest and boldest in Dutch innovation: 

- Daan Roosegaarde, founder of Studio Roosegarde, one of the leading designers of his generation, artfully navigating the boundary between the web and real life

-Taco Carlier, the founder of VanMoof, a company whose bicycles are revolutionizing the modern commute

- Alexander Klöpping, founder of Blendle, wunderkind net entrepreneur

5:00PM - 2.5 Minute Show & Tells by:

Surfly, Layergloss, Wearable Solar by Pauline Van Dongen, Chordify, Drome, Circus Family, Bottlenose

Putting the interactive in the SXSWi event, Drome’s LED wristbands will dictate the flow of the presentations, as a crowd-sourced light show from the guests’ wrists will emanate through the room when the speakers’ times come to a close. Guests will then be free to mingle, as they test drive and familiarize themselves with the participating Dutch companies - playing, viewing, and feeling the products, such as riding VanMoof’s smart electric bicycle, getting a mini 3D selfie printied of themselves from Shapeways, or playing a riff of their favorite songs on Chordify, in addition to meeting the impressive Dutch founders/creators themselves.
