Vibe of the Future

Join the Vibe of the Future – September 8 at Novio Tech Campus!

Inspiration festival for innovators in health & high tech.

To most of us, the future remains a mystery. Yet there are some who dare to look far beyond what is known, seen as normal or generally accepted as common thinking. At Vibe of the Future, we share the stories of these people. We will explore new perspectives on entrepreneurship, science and innovation, with leading changemakers like Bas Bloem and Lucas de Man. All while enjoying art, creative foods, new connections and chill and lounge!
