Disrupt your Life serie no.1 : Thrive in a Rapidly Changing World

Last Thursday, May 25, renowned futurist and biohacker Peter Joosten showed us how to thrive in a rapidly changing world. In this context, we have worked on: how to change behavior, how to do your storytelling, and how important and fun it is to be part of an ecosystem.

To move forward in your project, at some point you might find yourself with a question you don’t have an answer to yet. In this session we learned that through one or two contacts in your ecosystem you can already help you move forward!

Let’s disrupt 2023 lunch

“It is so nice to get acquainted with the Eindhoven Engine projects, which are very diverse in terms of technical subjects,” says Janne. “Being engineers, we like this! In other respects, the projects are very similar: the energy and inventiveness are high. And also the involvement with each other, as shown, for instance, in the 5-weeklys.”

What also became clear in the past two months is that it is getting busier and more dynamic at our beautiful location in Disruptor. It is often a puzzle to find a workplace or workshop space for everyone with the increasing number of activities of projects and student groups. How different this was only half a year ago. It means a lot to us as the Eindhoven Engine core team: now that the COVID time is definitely behind us, we see the fruits of our efforts to turn our offices into a vibrant innovation location.

We are also making plans for the future: Maarten (Steinbuch, scientific director at Eindhoven Engine) and Janne are busy working out two scenarios for the future of Eindhoven Engine, aligning with the Brainport agenda and in close consultation with our critical friends. More on this later in the year. Stay tuned!

Life is getting better and better at Eindhoven Engine!

Many activities took place, with the Festival of Disruption as a highlight. It was a great experience to have like-minded innovators together and so important to keep growing our community outside of Eindhoven Engine as well!

After the summer, we also introduced the project updates on Thursday mornings every five weeks, the ‘Every 5 weeks update’. These offer an informal moment to update and learn from each other and some valuable new connections have been made. From students to research to project leaders, all were present to provide mind-challenging presentations. We invite you to join these meetings as well; the time investment is low and the energy high!

As always, we will keep growing and gaining momentum with our community! If you would like to participate or be involved in any way, please contact us via community@eindhovenengine.nl!


Jasmijn, succesor to Joris

Meet also our new community manager Jasmijn Schol as the successor to Joris Dufils. Questions and advice about how to join the community or about community building, please contact her via community@eindhovenengine.nl

 

“I look foward to continuing to build the community of Eindhoven Engine. You can find me from Monday to Thursday in House of Disruption or 0.44 in building Disruptor.”
