Last Thursday, November 30, Walas BlueWorxx lauched their very first partner meet-up!
Over 30 innovators gathered at the Spinnerij to share inspiration and explore new ways to improve the performance of cities. This BlueWorxx partner meet-up was launched with a short introduction by Walas CEO, Gerben van Straaten, in which he told about the vision of Walas, the challenges of international cities and the projects that Walas carries out to make a concrete contribution to this. Then four BlueWorxx partners presented their companies and solutions to the other partners.
The introduction was followed by a break out session. Participants split up in to small subgroups to explore options for concrete cooperation and innovation. It proved a success with positive reactions and smart combinations of partners resulting from it.
