Lotte Geertsen, Project Leader Emergence Lab

Hi, I’m Lotte and in March I joined the Eindhoven Engine team as a project leader at the Emergence Lab. The Emergence Lab philosophy is all about the wider prosperity of our Smart Society. After all, everyone should be able to be part of it! Using ‘Smart Society’ as an umbrella, we work on impactful themes such as (1) Inclusiveness, (2) Quality of Life and (3) Future of work. These are themes that affect us all. Eindhoven Engine works together with the ecosystem on these themes in projects where the power lies in the connection. We work with each other, together. The Emergence Lab projects really bring people, society, technology and wicked problems together. As a project leader I like to bring these ideas to life and implement them together with the entire community.

In addition, I am responsible for The Entrepreneurial Lab of TMC where I stimulate and facilitate innovation projects in which we develop technology-based solutions that solve real problems and contribute to tackling societal challenges. You may go faster on your own but you come further together.

Innovation enthusiast

I am an innovation enthusiast who organizes, connects and loves to build bridges. I develop forward-looking strategies, particularly at the intersections of technology, people, entrepreneurship, innovation and creativity. I enjoy developing business from ideas. I also marvel at technology and human interaction, and believe that people make innovation possible. I enjoy building ecosystems with stakeholders and working towards a better world for tomorrow.

Furthermore, I am active as a Mentor at Female Tech Heroes and as co-founder of Female Founders Brabant. Besides all this, I am the mother of Mats (18 months) together with my boyfriend, Steven, and we live in Tilburg. In my spare time I love to be amongst people: my family, friends and as Burgundian Brabanders we get together with some scrumptious food and drinks.
