Who are we?

Spinwaves is founded to help people to solve problems and become more sustainable.

How does Spinwaves work?

Spinwaves helps you to find groundbreaking solutions for your challenges by organizing hackathons.

What did we achieve?

Our adventure starts in 2016 during Startup Fest Europe, where we organize the first hackathon.

“We have been thinking for a year about how we can attract more volunteers with colleagues. The hackathon with Lydia and Serena was a breakthrough: in one day the hackers design a beautiful concept that they are now going to build for us at Sparkcampus. A lot of energy and creativity has come loose, also with us.”

Corine IlicIVN

“Every project should actually start with a hackathon. Then you really have a fresh start and you do not start with solutions that are no longer applicable. Great day, tight organization too.”

Sacha StolpMunicipal of Amsterdam

“The special thing about a hackathon is the diversity of the people you work with. You notice how much you yourself are already in a line of thought. Special encounters and a lot of drive make this addictive!”

Alex ChiodoHacker

“The start of the team that is going to print The Meeting Factory was during the Dutch Construction Hackathon and now the building is printed in Teuge, so you can see how effective a hackathon can be!”
